Hello
I received an sdlxliff file and I imported it as usual in Wordfast 4 to work it.
The unsual is that there are locked segments (that I'm supposed to leave untouched), but this is not highlighted in WF: they are not locked and also the locked icon in the status column doesnt' appear. This means I don't understand what segments should be changed/translated.

Do you have any idea about this and how to highlight/lock them?

Thanks

Lucia

Dear Lucia,

This might not be available in WFP4. Could you please contact support and send them the file so developers can use it to investigate and add this feature?

I can imagine that 100% segments are not to be touched. You could use the filter to show all except 100% and context matches: http://www.screencast.com/t/HoxR9Ubk

Best,
John

Locked segments and 100% matches Oct 20, 2016

Dear John
thanks for replying. This might be a good way, although it might be confusing. Sometimes 100% matches should be changed and they aren't necessarily locked.
I have already sent this to the support through the Wordfast hotline.

Lucia
