Hello,

I was wondering how many termbases from Multiterm I can add into my Workbench as reference. I know that it is possible to add more than one, that only one can be the default one which I can edit, but I would like to know how many termbases I can add as reference..

Thanks a lot,
Francisco

The official number is 8, I believe Mar 13, 2009

I use anything up to about 20 at once. It works fine, but, when I close down and open up Workbench again the next morning, only the first 8 in the list are still there, so I have to add the other 12 again before I can start working. Eight is far too few for practical purposes, anyway.

By the way, I think you are mixing up two things. You can have a whole list of termbases listed in Workbench, and the terms from all of them will be recognised. You can also simultaneously have Multiterm open and, as you work, add terms to the various Multiterm termbases all the time, which will then be recognised in subsequent TUs.

What you seem to be thinking of, however, is the fact that only one TM can be open at a time, plus another one in the background for reference.

No limit AFAIK Mar 14, 2009

What makes Workbench forget the termbases is their name: as soon you have a space or a special sign (like @ for example) in the name Workbench forgets them.
But I think there is no limit as of the number of termbases which can be used at the same time.
