Hi,

I regularly get different TM's for different products, that all share a lot of options. I prefer to merge these TMs into a single file to keep overall consistency as high as possible. I keep the different products and projects apart by adding custom text fields such as Job, TM and Product.

However, when I import a new product TM, I often get many duplicates of the same source and target translation but with different values in the text fields.

I would like to request a merge option that merges segments with identical source and target but with different Text field values into one segment with all text field values together, so I don't lose them. E.g.:

Press button <X> to go to <Y>.
Job: 80231
TM: CLIENTX_203
Product: PRODUCT_A

Press button <X> to go to <Y>.
Job: 80132
TM: CLIENTX_204
Product: PRODUCT_B

merge into:

Press button <X> to go to <Y>.
Job: 80231, 80132
TM: CLIENTX_203, CLIENTX_204
Product: PRODUCT_A, PRODUCT_B

    Looks like a very useful function.
    We'll try to add it.
