After a recent update - or shall we say I haven't seen this before - term recognition looks within words?

For instance, I have a termbase entry for "pin", and none for "overlapping". Term Recognition highlights the word "pin" within "overlapping", then gives me a warning when I run a verification that it expects the corresponding term for "pin".

That's obviously an example, it gives me quite a few of these annoying warnings for things that are perfectly all right.

I'm using Studio 2011 under Windows 8.1, nothing changed recently (except for the usual Java debacle of yesterday) Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

Term recognition too sensitive or incorrect May 2, 2014


I'm experiencing the same problem after the Studio 2014 SP1 update (I think it started then).

I tried to get around this problem by setting "Maximum match value" to 100%, hoping that Studio now would only recognize exact matches. Unfortunately, it does not. It still 'recognizes' bil in excitabiliteit, for example (I translate from Dutch to English). Changing the Search depth setting does not seem to do anything either.

Conversely, the first word in a unit is often not recognized at all.

These are annoying (albeit not serious) bugs!
