I had seen in a post from Nora Diaz that you can quickly insert words, tags, numbers, terms from termbase and special characters just with ctrl + alt + right arrow. I treid it and it worked.

Then, I don't understand what happened but later it didn't work anymore. Maybe it is due to the file type I'm working at? I didn't find any customization in the Options and I don't even get the Quickinsert tab in the ribbon above.

Do you have any tip about this?

Thanks

Quickplace not Quickinsert Aug 23, 2017

I'm sorry, the right name for this feature is Quickplace

Only tags Aug 24, 2017

Hi Lucia,

Ctrl+Alt+Right arrow is an undocumented shortcut to insert tags but not other placeables. For other placeables (as defined in your TM settings, which can include Dates, Times, Numbers, Acronyms, Variables, Measurements and Alphanumeric strings), I use Ctrl+Alt+Down, but I think the default Studio shortcut is Ctrl+Comma. Terms from the termbases can be inserted either by typing the first few letters (AutoSuggest) or you can display a list of all the available terms in the segment with Ctrl+Shift+L.

Shortcuts can be accessed and customized by going to Options - Keyboard Shortcuts.

Hope that helps!

PS If you like AutoHotkey, we now have a pretty cool script to insert tags with a single keystroke, which you can select yourself. You can find it in the SDL Community AutoHotkey forum, here: https://community.sdl.com/solutions/language/translationproductivity/f/400/t/12964

Managing Capitalized terms Aug 24, 2017

If you get a capitalized term or an acronym (all uppercase), is there a way to get it copied with a key in the target segment?

Thanks

Download Regex Match Autosuggest app from the SDL appstore and then in its setup window set all the REgex expressions you need. I think some examples of regex expressions are on Nora's website
http://noradiaz.blogspot.com/2015/07/a-collection-of-regular-expressions-for.html
and on Paul Filkin's blog:

If you have Acronyms enabled in your TM settings, then you will be able to insert them with your regular QuickPlace shortcut. They will be displayed in a list for you to choose from. I personally prefer the Regex Match AutoSuggest provider, as suggested by Wojciech, which allows you to start typing and get the suggestion.
