G'day everyone

Is there a function or shortcut in WFP that will automatically update all identical subsequent segments with the translation of the current segment? I mean, if I have a file with several identical segments, and I translate or edit the first one, I want all subsequent identical segments to automatically (and instantaneously) be updated to reflect the translation in the current cell. Is that possible in WFP? How?

Samuel

In case you confirm a segment Mar 8, 2013

the rest of the segments will be filled in or changed in accordance with the options chosen.

Do have a look at the Wordfast wiki. The Wordfast Pro section has a lot of good stuff (eg. videos) made by Yasmin. Autopropagation is covered there:
