Hi All - have now wasted about 1 1/2 hrs trying to find some information in Trados Help or online - all to no avail !

I have a VERY big file (sdlxliff) with around 70% repetitions, which I now have to proofread. I am working in Trados Studio 2011 Freelance - SP2R 10.4.3109.2) - is there anyway of filtering/blocking out all subsequent 100% matches once I have approved the 1st segment of many? I have many, many segments that are identical apart from one change (1st Class/2nd Class - or BahnCard 25/BahnCard50, etc. etc.) - I don't want to check every single segment individually when I have (in theory) checked it a hundred times already - there HAS to be an easy solution to this? (on the other hand, knowing Trados :/ ...)

During my research I have also discovered that I do not have any toolbars apart from standard and "tools", i.e. no "Display filters" option - how has this happened? Andn how do I change that?

Grateful for any input.

Jane

Yes, if you read my post it says that for some reason I do not have that option under Toolbars ...

Don't know why and don't know how to "repair" that missing option ...

File Open Nov 12, 2013

in Editor? The behaviour you're describing is when no file is open in the Editor?

But don't know how to change that ? Won't let me change it in the UserSettings file ... - Oh, will let me change it if I right-click and select edit - bit nervous of changing things mid-job as I have to deliver tonight. Will it work if I change it within that file ?

To Play it safe Nov 12, 2013

Rename all of the xml files as old, shut down and restart Studio 11, should recreate them hopefully with the right settings
