Hi to all!

I've opened an .itd file and also a TermBase database in the Edit module.

When I'm in a segment, I hit [CTRL + F8] so that it performs an automatic search, but the little window that appears after Show Mini Browser doesn't show anything. Or I can't even move from one term to another with the arrow buttons.

Have I skipped some step?

Thanks in advance!

Maria José

Hi Maria,

you don't perform a search in the mini-browser with Ctrl+F8, but in the TB itself. Results are displayed automatically and directly under the two colums source/target, where a TM segment match is also displayed (if any).

In order to use the mini-browser, you need either to copy & paste the term or type it directly into the left box and press the search symbol.

You don't manage to press the arrows as no term is entered (using Ctrl + F8 ).

Best,

Giuliana

Thanks! Jul 5, 2003

Thanks Giuliana!

So the term search will be performed in TB automatically and will appear in the Mini Browser?

Kindest regards,

Maria José

No, not in the mini-browser.. Jul 6, 2003

Hi Maria,

When you use Ctrl+F8 you search the TB. The mini-browser is an extra search help, but it doesn't work with that command. You have to use the mini-browser as you would with MultiTerm or TB in DV, that is you type the term and search for it. Ctrl+F8 or any other command, as Ctrl+F4, F4, F5 Ctrl+M, etc. are commands for SDLX Edit.

I use the mini-browser for ex. when I am looking for all compounds with a certain term.. and I get all terms containing it.

Best,

Giuliana
