I forgot to add the settings file to my editing project, do I need to redo the whole editing?

It was a very large project where I made changes in a lot of SDLXLIFF files from almost 10,000 comments in a PDF file. I worked my way through the comments in the PDF file one by one. The original translator had made a very bad translation, and my task was to implement the reviewer's changes from the inserted comments in the PDF file, mainly a copy and paste task.

It was a very large project where I made changes in a lot of SDLXLIFF files from almost 10,000 comments in a PDF file. I worked my way through the comments in the PDF file one by one. The original translator had made a very bad translation, and my task was to implement the reviewer's changes from the inserted comments in the PDF file, mainly a copy and paste task.

Then, after delivery, it turned out I had forgotten to apply the settings file for the tags: SettingsWithGUI.sdlftsettings

There are 97 SDLXLIFF files and around 20 "no-trans" tags per file, usually found at the beginning of the xml.

Rather than redoing the whole project (which took me several days), can't I just look-up each of these tags in the SDLXLIFF files and make each necessary change one by one directly in Studio?

How can I search for the tag no-trans in the translation view?

I am trying to follow the advices here, about displaying the segments with texts:

https://community.sdl.com/product-groups/translationproductivity/f/studio/9940/any-filter-or-regex-pattern-to-see-the-segments-with-tags

But I can't get it to work. I have that plug-in installed already. Can't see any Search in active file under the View tab.

I had the Advanced display filter displayed, and... Yes, I think this will work:

No, when I have used Advanced display filter, I only get it displayed like this:

I am trying the suggestions here also, but still can not get the tags dislayed:
