I am trying to browse through the hundreds and thousands of segments in several large TMs, but the TM viewer will only ever display the first 50 segments in any given TM. When no search term is entered, these will be the first 50 segments that were entered into that TM chronologically. Otherwise, up to 50 segments matching the searched term will be displayed, once again in chronological order (at least judging by the Translation Unit IDs in the left-most column).

I know that at some point, the left and right arrows used to work (see the red box in the attached image). Now I'm forever stuck with the first 50 search hits. Is it something I did or is this a common problem?

No, those little arrows are to switch between different open TMs (you've only got one open, so of course these arrows don't do anything).

Use the big blue arrows up in the toolbar to jump to the next 50 hits.
See screenshot in this blog post:

And if you want more hits per page, then change the setting to 200 hits (see same blog post for instructions).

HTH,
Emma

Too obvious, of course Aug 14, 2014

Thanks Emma. I knew I've dealt with this successfully before, but I thought those tiny arrows were the solution and not the red herring that they once again turned out to be.
