Advanced filters

In the Advanced filters window, you can set the conditions for filtering the rows in the translation editor.

memoQ will show those rows that meet the conditions.

How to get here

  1. Open a project.
  2. Open a document for editing.
  3. At the top of the translation editor, click the Advanced filters icon-advanced-filter icon.

    The Advanced filters window opens.


What can you do?

Go through the four tabs of the Advanced filters window, and choose the conditions you need. You can filter segments by their status, the comments and tags they contain, and their updated or synchronized state (in local copies of online projects). Here is a description of every group of settings:

Using more than one condition

If you check two or more check boxes (even on different tabs), memoQ shows segments that meet any of those conditions. In formal logic, this is called an OR relation. Only one condition works differently: Locked or not is in an AND relation with all the other selected settings.

To use more conditions in an AND relation: Above the translation grid, click the Settings filtering-options-icon icon. In the Filtering options window, make sure the Clear previous filter results check box is cleared. Then do these steps for each condition:

  1. Click the Advanced filters icon-advanced-filter icon.
  2. Check one condition's check box.
  3. Click OK.

If no segments in the selected views or documents meet the conditions you choose, the view will be empty.

When you finish

To filter the rows, and return to the translation editor: Click OK.

To return to the translation editor, without filtering the rows: Click Cancel.
