The horizontal editing pane displays the current segment in the translation grid. The source and the target text appear in a horizontal arrangement, with the target below the source. When turned on, the horizontal editing pane is the place to enter and edit your translation.
From the View menu, choose Horizontal edit. To turn off the horizontal editing pane, choose Horizontal edit again. The horizontal editing pane is turned off by default.
The horizontal editing pane displays one translation segment in two rows: the source text appears above the target cell. The segment number is also displayed, as well as the cell with the status information about the translation of the current segment.
The horizontal editing pane is displayed below the translation grid. If the real-time preview is shown, the horizontal editing pane appears between the translation grid and the preview area.
When the horizontal editing pane is active, you cannot write translations in the translation grid. However, the translation grid moves around together with the horizontal editing pane: the current segment is always visible and highlighted in the grid too.
When you click a segment in the translation grid, it also becomes the active segment in the horizontal editing pane. The cursor will always appear in the horizontal editing pane. You can also move around in the translation grid using the mouse wheel or the scroll bar.
Navigation in the translation document is somewhat different when the horizontal editing pane is active. In general, you can use the same commands and key shortcuts as in the translation grid. The changes are the following:
|·||Moving to the next segment: Alt+Down Arrow. You cannot use Enter or the Down arrow.|
|·||Moving to the previous segment: Alt+Up Arrow|
|·||Moving one page down: Alt+Page Down|
|·||Moving one page up: Alt+Page Up
You can still confirm your translation by pressing Ctrl+Enter or Ctrl+Shift+Enter, just like in the translation grid.
