I like having the semicolon ; acting as a segment delimiter. I did change that for the relevant TM, creating a segmentation rule (with "Anything" before and after it in the rule definition). However, even after re-analyzing my whole current project, sentences with a semicolon are still shown as one segment, which I would then have to manually split in order to build my TM as I like it. Does anyone know how to fix it?

Thank you

Re-analysing a project won't re-segment it.

You should add this new segmentation rule under your general option settings if that TM is in there, and if not, start a new project, add the rule, and then run the rest of the project wizard.

Alternatively, you can simply delete the file and re-add it to the project, and then subject the newly added file to the 'prepare' treatment. The new segmentation rule should take. I have used this method many times when trying to tweak segmentation rules.
