I'm a bit onfused with the way the glossary lookup works for long glossary entries.
I have a (client) glossary with lots of long entries.
CT fails to find these, because there is also a short glossary entry for the first half of many of these.
Institute of Molecular Biology
Where the text contains "Institute of Molecular Biology", CT is only finding the glossary entry 'Institute'.
The 'Display longest match only' option is ticked.
Is this a bug or a feature? If a feature, how can I configure it to get the long glossary entry?
Many thanks for any assistance,
amos: Is this a bug or a feature?
Neither, I think. CT searches from left to right, and then finds "Institute" first. Then stops. Now if only you'd have used a TMX termbase(s)...
It's all very strange. Perhaps:
amos: OMG, that works!
What works is TMX termbases. Nothing else.
Glossaries should find the match for "Institute" and "Institute of Molecular Biology". With the "Display longest match only" option on, it would show only the longer match of the two.The only exception is where "Institute" is a part of another (earlier) match within this segment which should be shown in the Matchboard.
IK: ...it would show only the longer match of the two
But would it blend? I mean, would it auto-assemble?
Yes, the longer of the two should be selected for auto-assembling.
Amos: ...that TMX's (where I believe fuzziness has been implemented) would solve this particularl problem.
I'm pretty sure the whole problem wouldn't exist if you'd have used TMX termbases. Now if you're not in a hurry, could you please try?
amos: ...at present ease of editing outweighs the advantages of TMXs
And even that I contest.

Since the postings of Lenting/CafeTran Training in this thread have been deleted (again), and because this can lead to some misunderstanding, I re-posted them in the correct time order and context:
As you can see, a first name can be confusing, the first Hans mentioned refers to me, the other refer to Lenting.
