Ignoring & (ampersand) in searches

I often need to search translation memories containing UI strings. Sometimes UI strings use the ampersand (&) character to denote a keyboard shortcut. Is there a way to tell Xbench to ignore such characters? E.g. find ‘E&dit’ when I search for ‘Edit’.

Hi Alessandra,

To remove the ampersand character from loading as a keyboard shortcut, press F2 to open the
Project Properties window.

Then, select or add the translation memory to the project. At the
Glossary Properties, select Remove Shortcuts (&) at the Mnemonic Processing drop-down list.

Regards,

Oscar.

I knew there must be a way, thanks Oscar!
