Hi! Can someone with advanced knowledge of Studio 2014 tell me whether I can change the default track changes on setting when I open a file for review? The Quick Start Guide says this feature is automatically turned on when an sdlxliff file is opened for review. I am working on an editing project in Studio where the client doesn't want track changes on. So every time I open a file for review, I need to manually use Ctrl+Alt+F9 to turn off the feature.

Is there a way to change this default setting to "off" until enabled? Alternatively, if I manually turn it off, is there a way to make Studio remember my preference and have this feature stayed off next time I open the same file for review?

Thank you!

Track Changes Settings Oct 9, 2013

Hello Chun-yi,

It's not too tricky... you can go to File -> Options -> Editor -> Track Changes from anywhere, or if you have a file open for Review or Translation use the little "dinky" here in the Review Ribbon (I have no idea what this is called!):

Microsoft calls it a "dialog box launcher", but I much prefer "dinky"

Hi Paul,

It was so easy!! Thank you for sharing your expert knowledge with me--saves me a few mouse clicks every time I open a file for review.
And it's good to know there are two ways to get to where these settings are. The traditional (non-ribbon) way seems more straight forward, but the ribbon way is more visual and interesting. I like the ribbon way!

I learned a new word today Oct 9, 2013

Hi Emma and Paul,

Thank you for pointing out this interesting word--I would just browse through it without really thinking what it means.

Anyway, out of curiosity I googled it and found out two definitions on the web:

: overly or unattractively small ; also British : attractively small : cute

I am sure SDL used the second definition for "dinky":)
