Hello all,

I'm absolutely new to Metatexis and already have a really silly question: How can I skip a sentence I don't want (or don't need) to translate? In Wordfast I click ALT CTRL DOWN but this doesn't seem to be working here. So far I couldn't find anything in the Help file - maybe I missed something?

Close segment and move the cursor to the next one Sep 6, 2011

Hello Charlotte,

I've been using MetaTexis for a couple of months, so I'm not expert either, but this is what I do: I close the segment (alt + end) I don't want/need to translate, go to the next segment/line I want to translate and then open the segment (alt + down)

Have a good week

Thank you! Sep 7, 2011

Dear Claudia,

thanks for your quick answer! This is what I did as well but I thought there must be some less complicated way such as in Wordfast

Have a nice (rest-)week, too!
