Hello,

I guess it's basic, but how do I avoid this message? It pops up in Studio 2014 when I select a text that beings somewhere in a segment and reaches its end and try to use the DEL key.

Thanks!

Selecting text outside the active segment Sep 13, 2014

I think this happens when you select text with your mouse and by accident you include some text from the previous or next segment too. So, when you click "delete" Studio gives you this error message.

If you want to select all the text in a segment, click Ctrl+A. And when you use the mouse to select text, do it more carefully.

thanks, emma, but that's not the case. Sep 15, 2014

when I place the cursor at the beginning of a segment and press Shift+End, the last letter isn't highlighted. Still hoping for an answer!
