I've once created a TM called "misc. customers". But now I would like to move certain segments relating to a specific customer to a new TM that is intended only for this one customer.
Is there any way I can do this?
I hope I was clear on the issue I have.
Thanks in advance for the support.

Not crystal clear, I'm afraid. I think you compiled a TM with several customers on the go, or merged several TMs into one. In other words, in your TM, you got a segment with customer FOO, one with Bar, one empty, etc. For this new TM, you need segments for say FOO. In that case, it's relatively easy, just filter the customers. Open the TM in Edit TMX Mode, select Filter in the Menu, Segment Properties, FOO. Save (merge if applicable).
Now if your TM "misc. customers" doesn't contain FOO and Bar, etc. in the customer ID, I think you should filter on "date created" (default), and save the the filtered TM. I don't think you can easily add a customer ID, so I suggest importing it in an otherwise empty TM with the customer ID.
Hello Stefanie, as a follow up: how did you proceed?
I'm sorry for not having replied earlier. I'm pretty busy with a large project at the moment. Woorden's response fits perfectly to my issue ;-).
I'll try later and will post if this worked.
A workaround may be:
Please note that I'm not sure if information other than the source and the target, such as the creation date, is retained throughout this process.

Assuming the segments in question can be identified by a property such as Client's name or any other property in the translation unit, you can filter them out clicking the Filter button and specifying the property as you open the TM via Memory > Open memory... .

Strange. According to me, the way you can edit TMX files in CT is superior in any way.

OK, that's interesting and a great feature.
What I actually did was to try and export them from my big general TM by filtering on the project number and then exporting, but the TMX produced only contained about half of the segments (correctly) displayed by the filter (and in the meantime I'd deleted those segment from the big general TM).
Might there be a bug there??
I got around it by finding the old project xlf and importing to the new target TM, but I wouldn't like to rely on having to do this (especially as I don't make a point of keeping old project folders).
