Again, asking for help...
When trying to work on a project that was created in an earlier version, some formats are not apllied even when the text is 99% and it seems F3 is just searching for matches INSIDE the actual file, not in the whole project.
Thanks for any help
F3 searches in your project TM(s) (after selecting text), not in the current file open in the editor. There is no such a thing as "converting" a project to an earlier version: you open a project with whatever version of software you have available/are using. Maybe I am not answering your question, but the suggestions below may help.
"If no TM results are found, a concordance lookup (i.e. lookup of par-tial matches in the TM) can be performed automatically. By default, this function is disabled. You enable it in the Options dialog box (Alt/F10, F, T): click the arrow to the right of Translation Memory. In the dialog box, select Editor > Concordance Search Window and, under Search Options at right, select Perform search if the TM lookup returns no result.
You can also make manual concordance lookups as follows:
Search TM source text for expression in source text: Select it and press F3 [SDLX: Enter] or Ctrl+F3 [SDLX: Ctrl+F7].
Search TM source text for expression in target text: Select it and press Ctrl+F3 [SDLX: Ctrl+F7].
Search TM target text for expression in target text: Select it and press F3 [SDLX: Enter] or Ctrl+Shift+F3 [SDLX: Ctrl+Shift+F7].
Search TM target text for expression in source text: Select it and press Ctrl+Shift+F3 [SDLX: Ctrl+Shift+F7].
Insert text from a concordance lookup: Make sure that the cursor is placed where you want the text to be inserted. Select, in the concordance window, the text to insert. Press Ctrl+Alt+F3, or right-click in the selection and select Insert into document. Note that you can switch between the panes, including the concord-ance pane, with the keyboard shortcuts Ctrl+Tab and Ctrl+Shift+ Tab"
