Browsing your TMs/glossaries in Felix

Until recently, there was no real way to browse through your TMs and glossaries in Felix. One technique was to save the TM/glossary as an Excel file, and view it from Excel, but that obviously isn’t really satisfactory.

With the new Search feature in Felix, however, you can browse, edit, and delete your TM/glossary entries right from Felix.

The trick is to enter a search condition that will match all your entries, and then browse the results. I prefer to set the search term “created-before:2050”, which means “Show me all entries created before the year 2050”. Unless you own a time machine, this should match all the entries in your TM/glossary.

See below for some screenshots illustrating how to do this.

Assuming you want to browse a glossary, in the Glossary window, click the Search toolbar button.

The Search window appears. In the search box, enter “created-before:2050”.

All results are retrieved, and displayed in page view.

You can browse through the results, edit entries, delete entries, and so on. Incidentally, for this demonstration I used the Felix glossary created from the EDICT Japanese-English glossary file.
