Hi y'all!

I'm using memoQ translator pro 9.6, and I would like to create a view containing the documents in a specific order that has nothing to do with the available filters, i.e. NOT alphabetical or size or status or whatever.
Is there a way to arrange them in the order I want for a new view?

Hi y'all!

I'm using memoQ translator pro 9.6, and I would like to create a view containing the documents in a specific order that has nothing to do with the available filters, i.e. NOT alphabetical or size or status or whatever.
Is there a way to arrange them in the order I want for a new view?

My specific situation: I have a document the customer sent to me in separate smaller documents, but in the end they have to be in a certain order. The documents are different formats, otherwise I could just make one document in word and import that and work on that, but that doesn't work.

I'd prefer working through them in the prescribed order, but have them all in one document for auto-propagate because there are quite a few repetitions.

Yes, I am aware that I can work through them separately and then pre-translate the next one and so forth, but when I want to change something that repeats later, I have to keep doing that, plus I can't see my progress in real time.

Anyone have a tip on how to do that?

Thanks and have a great evening!

Just add 0...9 at the beginning of each filename Apr 8

00-Manual.pdf
01-Drawings.dwg
02-Instructions.docx
03-References.pptx
04-Index.xlsx
05-...
Then just 'Simply glue...' them. They will appear alphabetically starting from 00-...

Trick to put docs in specific order in a view Apr 9

Great workaround, Stepan, thanks for the idea!

It may be a feature request for future releases, though, to order them without this trick...

Thanks again and have a great weekend!
