Déjà Vu ideas

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. subset of the TM when creating an .rtf document

    It would be a nice idea to have a checkbox to include the subset of the TM when creating an .rtf document

    • Improvements for Add Term Pair dialog box

      I use (create, maintain, import/export) termbases in DVX3 asiduously. The F11 shortcut to add a bilingual term pair is a timesaver. I have a couple of recommendations to improve the dialog box for F11:

      1) Give corner extension handles or controls to view the full Context box.
      2) Add vertical scroll arrows to the Context box.
      3) Add font size preferences specific to the Add Term Pair dialog box.

      Please make it happen. Thank you.

      • Change the behavior of unlocking a segment

        Unlocking a source segment 'deselects' the text I had selected. When I unlock a segment, leave my text selection and/or cursor position as it was, and not reset it.

        • Allow comments to specific sections of a segment

          If I click to add a comment (or use Control+M) while there is text selected in a segment and then ask Dejà Vú to export the comments, is it possible to have the comment in Word et al. only correspond to the part of the text I selected? It's already implemented in other CAT tools, and a great help.

          • Add option to open a recently exported file (in its native app)

            When an export is done, instead of just showing a 'Close' button to close the window, show an 'Open' button to open the file you just exported to review it in its native app.

            • Change behavior of Shift + F3 keyboard shortcut

              Have Shift + F3 cycle through ALL case change options available in the GUI. I don't know why it ignores the Title Case option, and it drives me insane every time.

              • Fix the behavior of the Preview button on the ribbon

                Simply clicking the button itself doesn't do anything right now (only the options under the drop down arrow work). The logical behavior would be for the button to cycle through the options under the down arrow.

                • Have Deja Vu automatically refocus on main translation window when I close the Search and Replace window

                  Small pet peeve, but it's incredibly annoying to have to alt+tab back to Deja Vu every time I'm done with the search and replace window.

                  • Ensure Deja Vu is truly compatible with HiDPI displays

                    Too many laptops and desktop displays these days are 2K and up for this to be ignored. Update assets and interface elements to make sure Deja Vu doesn't require the Windows trick to upscale (which works horribly on Deja Vu for anything like Retina or similar).

                    • Allow Deja Vu to continue to be used as an update is downloaded

                      Why deny access to Deja Vu itself while an update downloads? Just download it in the background and let me know I'll have to stop working to update it when the download is over!

                      (Also doesn't help that the download is often incredibly slow)

                      • (Definitively) delete TM entries from Autosearch window

                        Not sure if it's a bug, but deleting individual entries from the AutoSearch window doesn't seem to delete them from the TM.

                        • Reimport a translate/proofread file to update TM with changes made outside Deja Vu

                          Add the ability to export a file to Word (for instance), make changes in Word and then re-import the proofread file and automatically align it to update the TM.

                          This is already possible by manually creating an alignment workfile and submitting it to the TM, but it's incredibly cumbersome. This should be a right-click option on Project Explorer. Similar to what MemoQ does.

                              I have several sets of "Find what" and "Replace with" regular expressions which I use frequently. it would be nice if I could store them for later re-use, like I can with SQL expressions.

                                I often receive satellite projects with segments containing two or even three sentences, separated by a full stop. It is so far not possible to split and divide them into the original two (or three) sentences.

                                    • Window and font resize in all windows

                                      Even when I use DVX3 in Windows 7 Pro with 115% overall font zoom for the OS, and even when DVX3 allows me to use different font sizes for secondary windows, this is not nearly enough for the termbase add term window, which remains at a ridiculously small size, as well as the fonts, which look like 7 or 8pt in size and are almost illegible. Some of us translators don't have 20/20 sight and wear bifocals. Thank you.

                                          Allow selection of part of an autowrite phrase. This would be particularly useful for MT entries when you only want the first part.
