Orange START button

Would it be a good idea, to let CafeTran Espresso 2019 ask 'Do you want to insert all exact matches?' when the user clicks the orange START button?

This is the situation when the developer wants to grill you, I suppose … ;-)

Honestly, in general yes, but next question would be "from which sources?", and yes, including TBs to have these short segments with TB hits prepopulated. 

A thing like a Filter "Segments with exact matches from TMs and TBs" (those to come, not those being) could be another nicer idea.

I don't think so, especially not in this weather. We have the best working relation and generally, my requests are fulfilled in a reasonable time frame.


And BTW, this was not a request, just thinking out loud, so it would probably have been better to post it under Coffee Talk.

Sure, I tihink Igor will actually be running with his tin drum around the christmas tree (we all do, don't we?), so he won't be reading this now anyway. I fear this kind of workflow things is not his favorite, especially when it has dialog boxes.

Some more alternative thoughts:

  • Add a second button "Start & insert all exact matches" (come on, there is enough space)
  • Some gimmick or shortcut then for the poor people that do not have these segment panes visible 
  • Add an option in the Preferences "Insert all exact matches after hitting the start button"
  • Make this behavior part of the project templates (yeah, including a template editor, finally)
