Checklists: "Is not" symbol or condition?


#1

Hi guys,

Sorry if this has been asked before, but couldn’t find anything relevant for negative conditions for checklists.

So, I can add something to search for in source, and the same to target (for the Checklist Manager to search and trigger on) - but I’m trying to find a way to search something and trigger if a condition doesn’t happen.

Trying not to be confusing, I was looking for something to trigger if:

  • source contains “AAA” (ok, normal)
  • target does not contain “BBB”.

Only options we have are: case sensitive, match whole word, no whitespace, normalize whitespace/native chars. So, my doubt is if there is a way to add an opposite condition.

Thank you so much in advance!

Hi,

Run the following search in order to get all segments that contain “AAA” term in source but do not contain “BBB” in target:

Source: "AAA"
Target: -"BBB"

Search mode: Simple
Powersearch: On.

The minus sign in the target before the term in quotes stands for the negative condition.

For more information on negative conditions and PowerSearch, consult the online help.

I also recommend the following videos on the Xbench youtube channel:

Oscar.

Hi Òscar,
That’s perfect. Will take a look and study those materials.

Many thanks!
