anchorref tags in IDML
Thread poster: foremonly
May 27, 2014

I am hoping someone can help me out with this. I have an IDML that has a bunch of anchorref tags at the beginning and end of segments. These are always either preceded or followed by tab characters. Because of these tags, the TM match value is fuzzy instead of 100% and I have to go in and manually insert in the tag for all these segments. I have been trying to find a way to segment out these tags such that the text alone appears in a segment and the anchorref tag appears either in its own segments or is set as a structural tag and excluded from the editor view in Studio.

I have tried creating a segmentation rule using a tab, but the tab segmentation rule only works for segments that do not contain the tag.

Is there any way to set up a segmentation rule to split the segment at the anchorref? If not, is there a way to split the segment at a tab before or after the anchorref tag?

Is there another way to make this happen in Studio so no one will have to spend their time transferring these tags from source to target in hundreds of segments?

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
