WS 10.4.4, 10.4.5 | WSXI-7158| IDML and MIF Studio File Type filters result in bad segmentation, specifically missing placeholders on conditional text in source segments


The IDML and MIF Studio File Type filters are causing bad segmentation in source segments on conditional text. The segmentation results in a break in placeholders in the source segments. If you open the asset in Browser Workbench and you try to save the asset before applying the TM, the following message is displayed: “com.idiominc.wssdk.asset.WSAssetSegmentationException: Attempting to insert an item that is already part of a collection.” If you apply the TM and save the asset, the message is as follows: “”.

This happens even if there is no translation memory configured for that asset.


You can fix this issue by deploying the update to WorldServer 10.4.4 & 10.4.5, available on FTP.

If you cannot deploy it, contact the SDL Support Team:

  •     Log on to your "My SDL" Account.
  •     Log a support request via Support & Education Support


  • All systems running WorldServer 10.4.4. & 10.4.5 and having the above issue should have this hotfix applied.
  • The fix for this issue is also available in WS 11.1.1.
