I sometimes work with sdlxliff's that have (some) pre-translated (non-confirmed) target segments. When I move to that segment and there is a tm match (typically >70%), Studio overwrites the target with the tm match. I can undo this by using ctrl+z, but is there a way to make Studio "recognize" that there is target content already and prevent this from happening, while of course still seeing tm results in the translation results window?
