  2. Revert terms inserted from AutoAssemble & AutoSearch

    Many languages (like Italian, the language into which I translate) revert the order of terms existing in English. DVX inserts in a segment the terms it finds in the order they are in the English sentence, so I have to move them around. It would be good to have an option to tell DVX that it should insert all the terms it finds but reverting their order.

  3. Filtering word with all wordforms.

    for example with «noun» filter also «nouns», etc. It's very useful for flex lang.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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).

  11. 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)

  12. 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.

  13. Add an undo option during spellcheck

    Add a button to 'undo' the last change(s) made during spellcheck so accidental clicks can be reversed.

  14. to ignore language codes in PowerPoint

    PPTX files are full of language codes which make no sense in a file which is to be translated in another language. Transtools has some codezapper style macro for PPTX but says after doing some some tests with us that other CAT tools just ignore these codes

  16. Enhance autowrite

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

  17. Automatically propagate segments during EV import

    This would vastly speed up simple PM workflows for projects where you choose not to send duplicates to the translators. The status of the affected segments would be set to exact or fuzzy propagated as appropriate. And (as always) this must be optional!

  18. Support for regex based placeables (from a project/template based list)

    Support for regex based placeables (from a project/template based list) to make sure for example business names and part numbers can automatically be replaced. (comparable to Trados Workbench value lists but then Regex based)This could be included to extend over duplicate matching so that 'duplicates' where only regex placeables differ are marked and checked as duplicates

  19. Automatically trim very short (stop) words (< 4 characters) from the beginning and end of Lexicon entries

    Automatically trim very short (stop) words (< 4 characters) from the beginning and end of Lexicon entries built with the Lexicon Builder and automatically remove shorter entries that are contained within longer entries and have the same frequency. Would help separate the wheat from the chaff in the often very long list of entries generated by the Lexicon Builder

  20. Include the Lexicon in Filter on selection

    Would make it much easier to translate portions after building a Lexicon
