For certain reasons I am translating SDLXLIFF files in a different CAT tool. When I open it in Studio, I experience the following unwanted behaviour:

I have for instance the following source:
GAUGES AND INDICATORS
I have translated this as
INSTRUMENTER OG LAMPER

But when I hit Enter, this is automatically changed to
INSTRUMENTER OG LAMPER
without the tags, since Studio finds this segment without tags in the TM, even though the tags should be there.

I am pretty certain there is a setting I am overlooking that makes Studio behaving like this, but I have not been able to find it.

Does anyone recognise the behaviour and can tell me how to make Studio stop doing this? As it is I have to leave the segment unconfirmed to ensure that the tags are not deleted as soon as I hit Enter.

TM searches for best match and replaces translation Oct 16, 2017

This may work:

Go to: File / Options / Editor / Automation

Under Translation Memory, if you have ticked 'Perform lookup when active segment changes', untick 'Apply best match after successful lookup'.

Thanks Oct 16, 2017

You were right, the option was ticked, so I will try with this unticked.

Thanks a lot for your help.
