Hi, in your documentation about translating with ACF ( ) it says:
"The same applies to repeater fields. Set the translation preference for the main repeater field then click the Apply button. This applies the translation preference to all subfields."
My problem is that I have a repeater with some subfields I want to copy and some of them I want to translate. When I set the subfields and click "apply" all the subfield settings are overwritten with the main fields settings...
How can I prevent this behavior and set subfields manually?

You should be able to change the individual fields once they are set - the option that was introduced to facilitate the setting of sub fields should not prevent you from setting the individual sub-fields separately.

Are you finding that this is the case?

If so, I woudl like to confirm the behaviour on your site and then try to reproduce it on a fresh install as this may be a bug.

Thanks for advising. I am opening the private area system access to your site and instructions on which field group to look at.
