I did the following on a 50 K project:
- search for a certain string (= short segments that should simply be copied to target)
- forgot to set the filter
- all segments were copied to target, also the already translated and confirmed segments, instead of only the segments with a certain string
- undo did not work (maybe it would be reassuring to have a menu command „Undo“, by the way)
This was no problem, I did not panic, I closed and reopened the project, and everything was as before.
The visual difference between a filtered and a non-filtered view (after a search) is rather clear, but not clear enough to avoid a risk of confusion. So perhaps it would really make sense to have a prompt saying: "This will copy all target segments to the target segments. Are you really sure?“.
There might be more commands where this would make sense.
> Are you really sure?“
It reminds me of some old Windows software where on numerous actions, the program kept asking me "Are you sure?", checking my state of consciousnesses.
I have just checked. To perform a Task command, it requires two intended clicks (first select the Task menu, then the tasks itself). It is really enough to prevent any accidental use of task actions.
I see your point. However, the Task menu is already pretty descriptive, and one needs to click the Task menu, scroll to the task submenu and click the task so I assume users are aware of what they are about to execute with no need to raise the alarm for yet another confirmation click.
