Hi everyone!
I've been trying to find a solution to this problem for several hours so far and I can't find any relevant information on the Trados forum.
I'm using Trados Freelance 7.0 with MS Word 2003 (Windows XP). The problem is that everytime that I open Word, the Trados flagman and the toolbar are gone. I have to go to Tools>Templates and Add-ons to manually activate them. A dialog box appears prompting me to enable macros, I press OK. Then the flagman and the toolbar appear but I can't use the keyboard shorcuts. I get no error message, the shortcuts just don't work.
I've seen in a post that I should copy the Trados template file to the Word startup file to avoid having to manually activate it every time, but I've already done it and things haven't changed.
Having to use the mouse every two seconds is really frustrating...
Thank you in advance.

On the MSWord menu:

TOOLS > Macro > Macros > Trados*.dot > Add > Run

Don't forget to click Accept when Word prompts to save Trados changes when closing the document.
