The scenario is this: I have opened a new segment to translate, and I have not yet typed anything on the target segment. Before proceeding, I wish to go to another already translated segment that is above the current segment, so I close the session (Alt + End), and then appears the message :
Accept this empty target segment ? What's the difference between answering Yes or No ? Can I prevent this message from displaying and define a default answer for it ?

What is the best way to go from one segment to another one that is not adjacent, in a document where the translation is in progress ? (some segments are translated and some are not)

Just hit Enter and proceed May 29, 2012

When you come back to the last segment you translate it and proceed. NO problem I can see.

Use Alt+Delete (RestoreSegment), it's more convenient for that purpoise.

Highlight the segment you want to switch to and press Shift+Alt+down (ForceSegment).

Works for me and no message appears - but mine may be an older version.
