Keyboard Shortcuts in the Job Editor

Created on 16th October 2018 at 10:25 by Jamie O'Connell



There are keyboard shortcuts available to use in the one2edit™ Job Editor.
The keys used will vary slightly depending on your Operating System (i.e. macOS vs Windows), but they are fundamentally the same in both.

The shortcuts are first shown as a list for quick-reference, with more details on each one later in the article.

NOTE:
The cursor must be active in the editor window to use these shortcuts. If the shortcut does not work, please click inside the editor window and try again.

NOTE:
We have tried to use shortcuts that do not have any existing uses in the most common web browsers. However, due to the evolving nature of technology, and the ability to set system-wide shortcuts, we cannot guarantee that these shortcuts will only affect items within one2edit.

Editing & Translation Keyboard shortcuts

Move Focus to Next Segment

Windows: Ctrl + ↓  (Ctrl + Down Arrow)

macOS: ⌘ + ↓  (Command/Cmd + Down Arrow)

Move Focus to Previous Segment

Windows: Ctrl + ↑  (Ctrl + Up Arrow)

macOS: ⌘ + ↑  (Command/Cmd + Up Arrow)

Set Status to 'Translated/Done' and Apply Changes (does not move focus)

Windows: Ctrl + ⇧ + ⏎  (Ctrl + Shift + Enter)

macOS: ⌘ + ⇧ + ⏎  (Command/Cmd + Shift + Enter)

Set Status to 'Translated/Done' and Move to Next Segment (does not apply changes)

Windows: Ctrl + ⏎  (Ctrl + Enter)

macOS: ⌘ + ⏎  (Command/Cmd + Enter)

Insert Top Translation-Memory Entry from the 'Translation' Panel (does not apply changes or mark as 'Translated/Done')

Windows: Ctrl + Alt + ⏎  (Ctrl + Alt + Enter)

macOS: ⌘ + ⌥ + ⏎  (Command/Cmd + Alt/Option + Enter)

NOTE:
If the 'Translation' panel is not open, the 'insert top translation-memory entry' command will instead open the panel. Using the shortcut again will insert the top TM entry.

Move Focus to Next Segment

Windows: Ctrl + ↓  (Ctrl + Down Arrow)

macOS: ⌘ + ↓  (Command/Cmd + Down Arrow)

This shortcut will move the focus from the currently-selected segment to the next available segment (if there is one).

NOTE:
If there is no 'next segment' (for example, if you are at the end of a frame), then the shortcut will not do anything. The shortcut cannot jump between frames in a job.

Move Focus to Previous Segment

Windows: Ctrl + ↑  (Ctrl + Up Arrow)

macOS: ⌘ + ↑  (Command/Cmd + Up Arrow)

This shortcut will move the focus from the currently-selected segment to the previous available segment (if there is one).

NOTE:
If there is no 'previous segment' (for example, if you are at the start of a frame), then the shortcut will not do anything. The shortcut cannot jump between frames in a job.

Set Status to 'Translated/Done' and Apply Changes

Windows: Ctrl + ⇧ + ⏎  (Ctrl + Shift + Enter)

macOS: ⌘ + ⇧ + ⏎  (Command/Cmd + Shift + Enter)

This shortcut will change the status to 'green' (i.e. 'Translated' or 'Done' or 'Accepted', depending on your workflow), and apply the changes (i.e. render them in your browser).

It will not move the focus to the next segment, but instead remain on the current segment.

Set Status to 'Translated/Done' and Move to Next Segment

Windows: Ctrl + ⏎  (Ctrl + Enter)

macOS: ⌘ + ⏎  (Command/Cmd + Enter)

This shortcut will change the status to 'green' (i.e. 'Translated' or 'Done' or 'Accepted', depending on your workflow), and move the focus to the next segment in the frame.

It will not apply/render the changes in your browser at this point, but the changes are still saved and will be applied the next time an 'apply/render' is executed.

NOTE:
It is quicker for the user to make changes and mark items as 'done', rather than rendering every single change as it happens.

Insert Top Translation-Memory Entry from the 'Translation' Panel

Windows: Ctrl + Alt + ⏎  (Ctrl + Alt + Enter)

macOS: ⌘ + ⌥ + ⏎  (Command/Cmd + Alt/Option + Enter)

This shortcut will insert the top-most match from the 'Translation' panel to the editor window, replacing any source text therein.

Translation-Memory matches are listed with the highest fuzzy-matching percentage at the top, so it should be the best fit. The text can then be edited as normal, using the keyboard.

NOTE:
If the 'Translation' panel is not open when the shortcut is used, the shortcut will instead open the 'Translation' panel. The shortcut must be used again to copy in the text from the translation memory.

NOTE:
This shortcut does not apply/render changes in the document, mark the item as 'done', or move focus to another segment.
