I'm aware that you can search in tags using the SDL Batch Find and Replace app. Yet does anyone know any way to do the same using the Find and Replace funcionality in the Editor View? In other words, I'd like to find segments containing certain specific tags inside the file I'm translating.

Also, does anyone know any way to filter segments in the Editor View, so that you can only see segments than contain tags? The Filter functionality allows you to see only segments that contain "comments", "messages", "only numbers", etc., but I can't find any option that allows me to only see segments containing tags.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Kind Regards,

Studio does not (yet) have a tag search function Mar 6, 2015


Studio does currently not support searching for tags. You'll find the explanation given by Paul Filkin from SDL here:

And it is also true that the display filter does not have any option to filter by segments containing tags.

Can you tell us why you would need to do this?

Reason why I'd like to filter by segments with tags Mar 7, 2015

Hi Walter,

Thanks a lot for your answer.

After finishing the translation of a very large website (tens of thousands of words), I've realised that I didn't handle the tags quite well. I worked using the "Partial Tag Text" view, and this prevented me from seeing exactly what each tag was meant for. So now I'd like to check all segments that contain tags, so that I can make sure they are right. Since the files contain so many other segments that don't contain tags, it would make things much easier if I could see only the ones that do.

Again, thanks a lot for taking the time to answer!
