Input Control

MetaTexis includes powerful features to protect the TUs against harmful effects, especially through deleting. It has four main functions:

       When a translation unit is open, it protects both the source segment and the translation boxes against being deleted.

       MetaTexis protects the segment delimiters against deletion. Plus, if you want to delete a part of the document which includes a partial TU, you are warned, and the selection is adapted to include whole TUs only.

       If you want to copy a selection of MetaTexis document, and the selection includes a partial TU only, you are warned, and the selection is adapted to include whole TUs only.

       If MetaTexis detects TUs which are not well-formed (e.g. translation was deleted), they are automatically "repaired", that is, they are transformed into a well-formed TU. However, this does not mean that MetaTexis can re-invent parts of the document which were previously deleted.

The input control should be active all the time, because the danger of destroying a MetaTexis document is much higher when the input control is not active.

You can de-activate the input control in the General options dialog box through simply un-checking the Input control checkbox in the Handling tab.
