Flattening block snippets

Postby Dafra08 on Tue Oct 22, 2019 3:10 am

Hi,

According to https://help.madcapsoftware.com/lingo11/Content/Lingo/Filters/Content-Flattening.htm, it should be possible to flatten block snippets (I assume they mean entire snippet files, as opposed to inline snippets). I can't for the life of me figure out where. There is only the Convert sub-segment snippets to text check box in the project properties, which applies to inline snippets. Does anyone know where to flatten entire snippets?

Reason: It's always better to translate everything in context, and the CAT tool will take care of repetitions/fuzzy matches. Hence there is no need to translate these out of context in the actual snippet files.

Just for the record. Only inline snippets can be flattened. The help has been updated.
