G'day everyone

1. Is there any way to consult a TM server using WFA without accidentally adding any translations to that TM, even if I move from one segment to another? With WFP, I can set my access to the TM server as read-only, but it appears to me (after some unfortunate testing) that WFA's remote TM access is writable by default (and as far as I know, I can't remove TUs from the TM server that I didn't want to submit in the first place).

2. I notice in WFA that the match percentage for any translation that I submit is immediately marked as "100", even if there was no match initially, or even if there was a fuzzy match initially with a lower match percentage. What is the purpose of that? Is there a way to prevent that from happening -- i.e. so that the match percentage of a segment remains intact? The problem is that if all translated segments are marked as "100" instantly, there is no way for me to scroll back and review segments based on their match percentage (as I would have been able to do in WFC, for example).
