Hi All,

I need an expression to instruct Dejavu X3 not to break sentences in the middle, when it encounters a full stop after certain letters and before a number. For example, not to break these apart:

p. 37
стр. 37

Here is a real screen capture of the problem:

Any ideas?

Best regards,
PTs

When you're in a hurry (and until someone gives you a real solution): replace 'p.' with 'xyz' in the source text (and maybe also in the TM) and import.

When the text is imported, replace 'xyz' with 'p.' again.

Worked for me, with Déjà Vu 2.

add them to exclusions

before split p.^w (p. followed by space)
after split ^# (any number)

before split стр.^w
after split ^#

try other variants
before split ^wp.^w (space p. space)
after split ^#

The most interesting thing - at segmentation DVX3 don't distinguish simple space and unbrealable space (CTRL+SPACE n word).

Segmentation options May 27, 2018

Hi Pavel,

FILE > Options > Segmentation

There are two panels, Rules and Exceptions

In Exceptions write the following:

Before Split: p.^w
(p. followed by white space)

After Split: ^#
(A digit)

One thing more... May 27, 2018

When these changes are made, which file are they recorded into? Settings.dvset ?

settings file May 27, 2018

Correct, they are stored in the Languages table of the Settings file.

Some DVX users think it is better to store them in project templates but updating the templates is a manual task, therefore I prefer the current settings.
