Maybe I\'m just exceptionally lazy, but after the effort of typing (or possibly pasting in) the search term, I find those long drop-down language-pair menus too much (I know, I know, two keystrokes is all that it takes... but still)



Whenever I visit that page, I think how convenient it would be to find the language settings and check boxes just as I left them the last time.



Would this be possible?

Deborah,

One (rather primitive) way to do this would be to open the Search Glossaries page in a new window. Use your first window to browse the site (KudoZ, forums, etc...) and whenever you need to search for a new term, all you need do is open your second window and overwrite the previous term. The language settings will remain the same.

Andy.

here's another exceptionally lazy person in full agreement! Sep 6, 2002

I\'ve thought the same many a time, but was too ashamed of my laziness to propose it! Good for you!
