Handling of the last segment in a project

New users report difficulties with the procedure to handle the last segment in a project. It looks like it stays empty/cannot be translated. My advice was to double-click on the blue segment number in the segments pane.


Is this the best procedure?


Can the handling be improved, since it is indeed counter-intuitive?

Agree with Hans on this. Especially when editing an existing last segment, I always have to check that my changes have taken effect. It's very counter-intuitive.

It all has to do with the settings of the Skip menu. When arriving at the last segment in the project, any active Skip settings should be overruled.

I think you're muddying the waters with this talk about the skip menu (it's not a menu, it's a sub-menu of the inaptly named Action menu).


The point, surely, is that changes to the last segment should be visible. (Irrespective of the skip settings.)

You're absolutely right and while writing this I was aware that I should be more precise. As always.
