I read in another thread about match repair and that it can cause slowness in Studio 2017. I will not update my Studio for a while yet, but can someone explain what match repair should do?

An attempt at 'fixing' incomplete concordance matches Aug 9, 2017

If you have a fuzzy concordance match, the system will try to 'fix' the match by replacing the un-matching words with words from your TMs or attached dictionaries. Sometimes, it is useful, at other times, it is close to Volapyk.
