Updating the changed (red framed) segment

Hi all,

The problem is as follows.
During translation I changed my mind concerning the translation of a given segment. So I went back to the beginning of the document to adjust the places where this changed segment occurred. While entering them, these segments were of course red framed. Pressing Ctrl+Alt+M I can flash a small window which shows the changed version of the translated segment.

Now the question: is there any way (key combination ?) to copy the modified version of translation straight in the place of the red framed old version. If the changes are substantial correcting "by hand" is time consuming. Copying and pasting from the "changed-translation-frame" is also inconvenient because the changed text is in smaller font which needs additional resizing.

Thank you for any pointers.

This key combination will cycle through all the options in the TM for the given segment. Much quicker than doing it by hand!

Also, when you are copying/pasting into a segment, try ALT + F12 to reproduce the formatting quickly.
