Reloads the segments currently on screen. If you cannot select a particular piece of text, try this.
Allows you to decouple the document scroll. By default, when you move the view of the document, the view of both documents will scroll together (i.e. they are locked). Unlocking scrolling will let you move around and view each document independently. This is useful when the documents become out of sync due to text expansion.
Highlights and color codes all the segments (see color codes below for more info)

Pops up a comment window where you can leave a comment for the translator to review once you have finished. Please do not request changes to the current translation here.

|Red||The translation is modified, but the document needs to be regenerated for the changes to display|
|Green||The translation has been modified, and changes are visible and there are no other changes since the last reload or regeneration|
|Grey||The translation is locked and cannot be modified|
