I am translating a long document with a lot of repeats and fuzzies.
Every so often I have a section title which is repeated two segments below. When I reach the second instance Studio 2011 does NOT suggest the translation I have just entered for the one above, although the only difference is formatting. It does suggest 72% matches already in the TM.

This is very tedious.

Try updating your memory with the file you are translating Nov 13, 2014

I get frustrated too by Studio 2011!

... because this just doesn't happen! If you get a 72% match then you are most likely not really sending the first one to your TM in the first place. Perhaps your problems are related to the TM not being enabled for update in your Project Settings?

I have the opposite problem Nov 13, 2014

I translate the entire document and then I when I go to confirm each segment (because I may make 20-30 changes to each segment during the course of a translation, so I wait until the very end to confirm), but then it erases following segments and replaces my correct translations with fuzzy matches... I probably have a setting wrong somewhere...

Better to confirm... Nov 13, 2014

... the segments as you work because otherwise the autopropagation can overwrite non confirmed segments when you start again and confirm things you've already translated. Alternatively change your auto-propagation settings to always warn you before auto-propagating so you have some control over the way you wish to work.

"Perhaps your problems are related to the TM not being enabled for update in your Project Settings" Nov 14, 2014

I don't think so ... looking at project settings now and can't see anything that says this.

It's doing it again now (5 am here, can't sleep, decided I might as well get some work done), so if you are around maybe we can look at it now, let me know how I can let you look at it, although it's in Spanish ...

ok, that was it Nov 14, 2014

The update option in project settings was unchecked for some reason.
Thanks for the tip.
