Hello,
I have this scenario in Studio: I translate a segment which is then auto-propagated 100% below in the file, my translation contains a special letter sequence (e.g. xx) meaning that it will be replaced later by an expression. If at the end of my translation I filter all target segments containing xx and modify my first translation, then the auto-propagated segments will NOT be changed accordingly.

Is there a way to set Studio to also change the auto-propagated segments automatically?

Thanks,

Change options Jul 25

Go to File > Options > Editor > Auto propagation. Tick:
1) Enable Auto-propagation
2) Auto-propagate exact matches to confirmed segments
3) Confirm segment after auto-propagating an exact match.

Under Starting position, select Auto propagate from First segment in the document

That should auto propagate the first segment in which you replace xx with the wanted text to all the same segments as soon as you confirm the segment.

It works! Jul 25

Hello Francisca,
thank you very much for your prompt reply! Your suggestion works perfectly, I didn't expect to find a multitude of options for auto-propagation in the general options. I've made the changes you suggest and can surely come back to it to adapt it if necessary.

Thank you and have a nice evening!
