I was working on Word 2003 and Trados 2006 when all of a sudden, the cursor stopped working. I can't highlight anything, I can't use the mouse to place the cursor anywhere. I tried restarting Word and Trados, and it seemed to have solved the problem but after a few seconds it showed up again. I even reinstalled both programs but the problem keeps showing up.

I think the problem might be related to the template because once the cursor stops working, the template list seems to be empty.

I don't know what else to do. Does anyone have any idea about what might be wrong?

Thanks
Claudia

I don't know either what the problem might be, but, if I were in your place, I would export the TM on .txt, and create a NEW TM importing the same .txt TM.

Sometimes it works.

Have luck.

Cursor not working Mar 25, 2007

I noticed that you have cursor not working in Word when you use Trados. I have the same happening when I use Wordfast. Usually everything is fine until I do term search. Sometimes just having various documents translated with Wordfast does the same.
I never had this problem until I got my Toshiba laptop though. Perhaps it is problem with laptops?
