Q: Whoops! My documents have been pretranslated, and I don't have access to the originals. But now I would like to have the originals back, unsegmented. Apparently, it takes a lot of successive Find-Replace passes to un-segment documents...

A: Quite the contrary. It takes only one FR pass to do that.

Find what (\{\0\>)(*)(\<\})(*)(\{\>)(*)(\<\0\})
Replace with \2
Use Wildcards
Set the replacement font format to "not hidden" (check, then uncheck, the "Hidden" checkbox).

The only limitation is, make sure source segments do not contain hidden text. But they rarely do.

Note: the the same result can be achieved with the Alt+Delete shortcut, pressed when no segment is opened.
