Detecting language please wait for.......
I work with Trados 2017. There's this thing that keeps happening to me and that is driving me round the bend:
I seem to be hitting some weird combination of keys that causes Trados to mark all segments as translated, even empty ones. I know how to undo the damage (just change segment status), but what I'd really like to know is: What's causing it? Is there a key combination or button that I am inadvertently hitting??
Grateful for any ideas on what's going on...
It really depends on the way you work. When searching & replacing, I do not need to have the segments updating my TM in this very moment, having changed the status to "Translated" or whatever needed is…
This happens to me when I select and confirm several unconfirmed translated segments. Then all empty segments are confirmed too.
There is a shortcut for "Confirm all" - simply go to File -> Options -> Keyboard Shortcuts, locate this particular one and deactivate it. When done, an accidental confirmation of all segments should not happen again.
Thank you for your reply.
But I do not use the shortcut "Confirm all" - this one is deactivated in my case.
I just select e.g. 3 translated segments out of 100 empty ones. And I want to confirm only this 3 segments. But Studio confirms the whole file.

Can you elaborate please:
1. Now I´m using Studio 2019 ver. 126.96.36.1993. But this is problem known to me since years, in Studio 2014-2017 too.
2. No filtering, all segments in the file are displayed. I select 3 contiguous segments of course - with the mouse or with Shift+Down/Up. Then I conform with the hotkey "Confirm and move to next unconfirmed segment". Or with "Confirm and don´t move to the next segment".
I tried it right now with a huge file I´m working on. All remaining 500 empty segments were confirmed. Studio froze for several minutes. Then I found out, that CTRL-Z has stopped working once again...
That is happening from time to time.-I am a version 2017 user, have no idea about version 2019
Have you checked, if the shortuct for confirming all segments isn't active in your Studio version?
When CTRL+Z stops working, you have to close Studio and restart it. Usually, when that happens, Studio will freeze in the near future or crash completely.
The shortcut for confirming all segments is not active.
As for not working CTRL+Z: I was told by the SDL support, that this bug will be corrected in S2019 SR2. Did not happen.
I suppose that restarting Studio all the time is not the way translators want to use it on daily bases...
Unfortunately it is the same in 2019 too.
More specifically, this "feature" is available since Studio 2014.
