I'm having a problem when autopropagate is activated, it's a bit hard to describe but here goes:

I am reviewing a document. There are two identical segments, segment 1 and segment 2. I approve segment 1 (Translation Approved) and go on to segment 2. Segment 2 automatically gets approved but the status of segment 1 automatically reverts to Translated.

Is there some sort of setting I have wrong?

Try setting Autopropagate forward only.

using Autopropogate Jun 13

I'd be very careful using Autopropogate as it can screw up a good translation.
Not sure about using it in forward mode only as I've never used it since it came out and I realised how it inserts things it thinks are right but may actually not be.
Some of my clients have sent out a warning to all the people they work with not to use it.
