Hi All!

It is driving me crazy (and I am wasting a lot of time trying to find it out).

What is the shortcut to copy the source segment into the target (like F5 in DejaVu)?

I searched the 640-pages manual without finding it.

Thank you in advance,

Thank you. Apr 13, 2014

Thank you very much.

Actually this shortcut is listed in the manual, but they call it "Undo translation of the current segment".

No wonder I could not find it with using the word "copy" in the search box.

In fact the shortcut *is* undoing the translation. Beside restoring the original source content, the function also sets back the segment status to "untranslated", i.e. the segment "looks and feels" like being never translated.

You saved my day... Jul 29

I was struggling with this for two weeks...
And, BTW, in each and every case and tool, if you copy source into target segment, its status is always untranslated - I can not imagine otherwise would be possible
