lexiQA's Editor provides the workspace where you can revise your checked files in more detail and make any corrections necessary. When you open a file in the Editor (by clicking Review file in the Project overview page), by default you get a view-only display of all the segments of your file where an issue has been found, using the native segmentation of the file that was checked. Each issue identified is either underlined or highlighted and colour-coded in a user-friendly way so that the issues are easier to track in the text. The colour coding matches the colours of the toggle filters in the header of the report.
# Toggle checks
In lexiQA's Editor and QA report you will notice in the header a set of toggles which can turned on or off, depending on the error class you want to see (in any combination). You can view either the segments With issues (default toggle position) or (only in the Editor) All segments (for a more context-specific review).
The toggle descriptions are groupings of all the active error classes which lexiQA supports. Detailed information on these error classes is available to lexiQA users only.
# Open / Close / Save
If you want to close a segment that is currently open, even without having made any changes to it, press Esc on your keyboard.
If you want to keep a change you've made in the target text, click Save (or press Ctrl + Enter in Windows, CMD + Enter in Mac); the relevant segment ID box on the left will immediately turn green.
If you move to another segment without saving your changes, the segment ID box will turn orange.
# Ignore / Ignore all
For every highlighted issue, you also have the option to Ignore a particular instance or Ignore all instances of the same issue in the same project. If you change your mind later, you can also Undo this action for a particular instance. (But please note that undoing an Ignore all action is not possible.) Toggle on the Ignored filter if you want to bring up into view in the Editor all segments with ignored issues.
# Fix all
When there are multiple instances of the same issue in the same file, you can also use the Fix all function which allows you to batch-correct multiple errors using the same solution. However, much as this function saves a great deal of time when the exact same problem has been found in the same file multiple times, we advise caution when using it with broader error classes where a variety of issues may have been detected in the same class. Also note that there is no Undo action for this function.
# Revision history
Clicking on any of the icons in the middle column in the Editor will give you access to the revision history of a particular segment. Here you will find a complete record of all changes that have been made (and when they were made). This can be a particularly useful point of reference when the revision and proofreading tasks have been performed in the Editor by different people - it is therefore easier to monitor multiple changes on the same file by multiple users over time.
Once you have completed revising a particular file, tick the Complete checkbox in the top menu bar. At this point the file will be locked (no further changes will be possible) and you will be redirected to the QA report page for this job. At the same time an email notification is sent to the project owner who is the only person who can unlock the file for further revision in the Editor, if required (via the Project overview page).
Click on the Search icon (or press Ctrl + F in Windows, CMD + F in Mac) to initiate a text search in the Editor. You can run a search in the source text (ST) only, in the target text (TT) only, or concurrently in both ST and TT. Use the buttons on the left to refine your search:
- Aa your search is now case-sensitive,
- Ab| your search string needs to be matched exactly (no partial word matches),
- .* use a regular expression as a search string.
# See QA Report
You can access the QA report directly from within the Editor at any stage of the revision process by clicking on Analytics. In order to make a correction, all you need to do is click on the target segment you want to fix. The target segment immediately becomes an editable area and now you can change, add or delete text as required.
