For some reason Ctrl+Alt+Down/Left/Right is not working in Word nor in TagEditor. I'm working in a laptop with an external keyboard but every other shortcut is working fine; also, the 'Get Placeable' button is working as usual, it's just the 'Get Placeable' shortcut that's somehow broken.

I have DNS, which I know sometimes interferes with other shortcuts, but I removed all the assigned shortcuts in DNS option menu. I also made sure DNS is not running in the background.

I see how sometimes the Word template can cause problems with non-Word shortcuts but I don't understand why this one shortcut is not working in TE either

For the record, I have Trados 8.2.0.835 and Word 2003 running in a Vista system. I'd appreciate any help.

Thanks!

nVidia nView application? Aug 4, 2008

I have some problems on my home PC with nVidia's nView desktop management software preventing certain hotkeys from being recognized. Since many PCs nowadays are equipped with nVidia graphics cards, this may be worth checking out.

HTH,
Benjamin

Intel Graphic Card Aug 4, 2008

Hello Benjamin,

Thank you for your answer. But in this case, nVidia's not the problem because I have an Intel video card. I don't even know if the Intel graphic card controls or interferes with any shortcut.
