How can I see in the editor window for SDL Trados 2007 freelance (TagEditor) which segments are repetitions?

My customer doesn't pay for repetitions so I will not check these when I begin with a translation projects that involves many 100 % matches and repetitions, plus also a substantial part new words and fuzzy matches. So I wonder if there is any way to skip these occurrences of repetitions in the editor window? And only check 100 % matches and then translate the new words and fuzzy matches?

Let customer mark the segments you don't have to work with as locked or hidden text so you actually wouldn't spend any time on them when "translating to fuzzy". If using customer's TM that has 100% matches in them, I'm not sure you can let Tageditor skip repetitions and only stop on "new" 100% matches. If using a new TM, you can just "translate to fuzzy" and make sure you don't have any TM penalties that would stop you on repetitions.

Create an empty TM (TagEditor always open with Workbench), do an analysis and you got your answer, simple as that.
