Can anyone please advise how to get the source text boxes back on the screen? I have no idea what happened. I restarted my Word and they disappeared. (there had popped up a question about macros).

Thank you!

Macro have to be set on low/middle "security" Jun 13, 2008

Hello Evgueni,

try either this (or what follows): it depends on your settings, but you should be able to see a sort of "P" among all MSWord icons (the "character" you normally see in the document at the end of each paragraph, if all characters are set to visible). Click on it to view all characters. Another way to come to the same result: Tool - Option and then tick on show all characters (or signs - sorry, my sys is in German, don't know the exact MSWord definitions)

As you mention macro, you have to set the (document) security on "middle" when prompted, otherwise Trados won't "work". Put it a very simple way, Trados is a macro.

thank you Jun 13, 2008

thank you very much! I can see the source text now. My macro security was on the middle. Don't know what happened. Well, I see the sourse text but it's filled up with charachters and there're no boxes or backgroud color. Weird. But thank you anyway!
