Hi all,

I have the following curious issue:

Since I bought Studio 2014, I've been using it to translate TagEditor files (.ttx) (in stead of using TagEditor itself). This *usually* goes without problems - after using 'Generate Target translations', I get a fully translated TagEditor file again.
However, sometimes (not always!), the XU segments (which were converted to locked segments in Studio 2014) come out NOT locked anymore in the final target file. According to the client, this presents problems (not sure what those problems are, the tech guy speaks minimal English and the PM speaks minimal Tech).
Has anyone had this problem as well? If so, how did you solve it?

The client now asks me to please go back to using TagEditor, which I really would hate to do, as I vastly prefer Studio 2014.

Thanks for any help,

Jan Willem

I have to ask the client Dec 11, 2013

Thank you. I will ask the client if he agrees, because there is this NDA thing. If the client is OK with sharing I will gladly send the file.

Update Dec 18, 2013

Well, I asked the client, and he sent me some files to investigate. However, these did not present the issue (they exported XUs correctly). So I've notified the client, and have not heard from him again yet. I will keep you informed.

However, I did find something else here:

Could this be a related issue?

Thank you for your help.
