Go to what Oct 20, 2010

I don't know if you mean the equivalent to Go to in MS Word, but as far as I know there is no Go to in WFP and I fail to see why you would need it

Similar question Oct 20, 2010

I actually have a question that seems be similar to this one and I just posted it.
Go to/Find would be useful for locating words that you want to edit, right? I am not even looking for a shortcut but at least the function. The question makes sense to me, please see my next post.

Go to Line... function exists Oct 21, 2010

Lianne, I know that the Go to Line... function exists because I activated it accidentally with the keyboard. Rgds, AT

You can use Ctrl+F7 to move to the Next View. You can just press Ctrl+F7 to switch views or you can hold to select from a menu.

Once the Outline Layout is focused, you can press the Segment ID's first digit or use Down Arrow or Up Arrow to move to the next/previous segment; the focus with move into this segment with the cursor blinking in it.


========================
Another relevant tip:

Some users prefer to use the keyboard to move between segments without having to use Alt+Down which will commit the segment to the TM. Ctrl+Down Arrow and Ctrl+Up Arrow is for moving (only moving) between segments in the TXML Editor without committing to the TM. Actually, this is useful for the Table View as in Text View, you can use Down and Up arrows directly. Still, using Ctrl+Down/Up should be faster.
========================


I hope this answers your question. If not, please elaborate on what you mean.

Thank you, Yasmin Oct 21, 2010

Thank you for your reply, but I am looking for another function.
I accidentally pressed some keys and there appeared a dialague box that said:
Go to ....., where I entered (for example) ...678... segment and then pressed Enter.
The cursor moved to the 678 segment.
I would like to know which combination of keys I should press to activate this dialogue box. Regards, AT

To find words in WFP simply hit Ctrl+F, this will open the find screen. You can also use Ctrl+H which is the replace screen.

What you are referring to is the Go to Line command (Ctrl+L), which works only in Text view because Table view does not have line numbers. If you are in Text view and know the line number that you want, simply press Ctrl+L, enter the number, and press Enter. To view line numbers, right-click the blank vertical bar to the left of the text to translate and select Show Line Numbers (also found under Window > System Options > Text Editors > Show line numbers).

Hope this helps,
Jamie
