G'day everyone

I received a translation package from a client, and opened it, and as I scrolled down the file, I absent-mindedly clicked inside a few segments, and Trados automatically inserted some fuzzy matches into those segments.

I then scrolled back to the top and opted to filter only "non-translated" segments. To my great surprise, not only 100% matches were filtered out but those segments in which fuzzy matches were inserted were also filtered out (presumably Trados believes that they are non-non-translated)! It's a good thing I noticed this.

However, now my question becomes: is there a way to reverse a filter in Trados 2011? I can select to display only 100% matches, but is there a way that I can choose to display everything *except* 100% matches?

... but maybe you can lock everything. Then unlock everything apart from 100%. Finally display on unlocked.

If you do have 2014 installed then you could use the SDLXLIFF Toolkit on a 2011 SDLXLIFF to go this for a project fairly easily,,, otherwise I think it would be 2 or 3 filtering exercises per files.
