Hello everyone

I have a document in WFP with many repetitions, so WFP auto-translates segments for me when I press Alt+down. But I would like WFP to go directly to the next untranslated segment, i.e. to skip over a segment if that segment already as text in it. Is there a shortcut or method to accomplish that?

Thanks
Samuel

I'm pretty clueless about such things, but couldn't you just use the autotranslate feature? It's not the same but almost.

Here's what I do:
In the outline window, I click on the segment that has no color. If needed, it is much easier to scroll the outline window than the main editor.

I don't know of any shortcut.

Cheers!

Perhaps the WFP support might know a short-cut to get you directly to the next empty segment.

I usually use the "down" arrow, also to save the segment, but if there's a faster way, I'd like to learn it.icon_smile.gif

Also in the Outline window, there is a dropdown list that allows you to select what segments are displayed.
