I am trying to get my 100% matches to displayin a different colour than the fuzzy matches. When I set theses colours under Options/Translated Text Colours, the display box shows exactly what I want the text to look like, but when I start translating, all translated text is one colour: the color I specified for 100% matches. There is nothing in the help menu indicating what can be done. I noticed, though, that when I use the CLOSE command after every segment instead of SetCloseNextOpenGet, the right colors will display. That does not seem to be practical, because the TM will not get updated in that fashion.
Does anyone have experience with this featur?

Maybe you have already solved this problem, otherwise this is what you do:
Pretranslate the file with for example Dakt Green for 100%.
Then change the setting for 100% to another color. Use Translate to Fuzzy when you translate. This means that all the 100% will stay Dark Green and the rest of the text will be in the other color.

Thank you so much, that sounds great. Mar 15, 2005

What you describe makes perfect sense, I'm sure it will work. It will help me a lot to be able to do this.
Thanks for taking the time to share your knowledge.
