Studio 2011 only goes manually

I must have hit a button somewhere without realising it, but suddenly I translated a segment, confirmed, and Studio didn't move down from the segment. Then I noticed that all remaining segments are ticked as 100%, even though they're still blank because I haven't got that far yet. When I export, the English version has all the gaps where text is meant to be, apart from some pre-populated repetitions. I have to move down manually each time, which is annoying, although each time I exit the translated Word document does reflect how far I've translated, so it still translates OK.

Any ideas?

Restart Studio Mar 7, 2015

Have you saved your work and restarted Studio? Have you tried restarting your computer?

Try that later Mar 7, 2015

Hi Emma,

Thanks - I'll try that later when I finish this morning session. I'm using an online TM and a static TM running together, but I have a few files to do with this job, all quite similar, and I started two of the others to see if the same thing would happen, and it doesn't. It picks up the segments already in the TM, and rolls down as usual, so it can't be anything to do with the general setup. So I'm going to do the other files first, and then presumably everything will fall in with the problem file at the end.

Mervyn

Change segment status Mar 7, 2015

In that case, I'd filter on 100% matches, and then select all the ones that are blank. To do this, select the first untranslated segment by clicking on the segment number column. Now go to the end of your document and press shift+left mouse click.
With all these segments selected, hover your mouse in the number column, right click and select Change Segment Status>Untranslated.

That will bring back the normal behaviour for Confirm and move to next untranslated segment.

The great Emma Goldsmith ... Mar 7, 2015

... strikes again.

Yes, I did as you said, and all back to normal, good-oh. Thanks a bunch, Emma, although I still don't know what key combination I must have hit to knock on a daft feature.

Muchísimas gracias,



Mervyn
