The Studio display filtering tool is surely useful to some, but for me it seems to do the opposite of what I actually want. If I click on, for example, 100% matches it filters out everything EXCEPT 100% matches. OK, that's fine, I guess. But what if I want to see 100% matches AND Fuzzy matches? There is no option.

Or what (and this is actually my problem) I want to see everything EXCEPT 100% matches?

To me this would make much more sense while translating, i.e. to hide certain pretranslated segments and just show what needs to doing (without hiding what I've translated myself, of course).

This should have been so simple to implement (with check boxes, and/or a show/hide option) but as usual the developers haven't thought things through or just haven't listened. (As usual, this is one of the things that memoQ makes so easy: you can show/hide what you want).

So is there any simple way of doing what I want? And when I say simple, I mean without having to learn some weird programming language (RegEX).

I guess the easy way... Mar 4, 2015

... is to lock all 100% and then filter on unlocked.

I agree with you though, having a reverse option would be useful. Maybe in a future release.

Thanks Paul. I'll use that as a workaround for now and hope it gets added sometime in the future.
