Translator's Workbench 7, Word 2003, Windows XP pro

This happens with some files, not all.

Usually it is after I have translated the title of a text. I hit Alt+ and the cursor goes to the next segment but the yellow field disappears and the first letter is selected, workbench doesn't work anymore.
I guess it has something to do with bookmarks but when I check at the beginning, before I start using workbench, there are no bookmarks in the document.

Sometimes, i place the cursor in the middle of the document and it starts working normally.

Delete markers Mar 24, 2009

Go to Insert menu from Word and select "marcadores" (sorry, my Word instalation is in Spanish). Someone with the name "tw4win..." will appear. Delete it and you could work normally.

End of paragraph missing Mar 24, 2009

Hi Javier,

It sounds like Trados can't find an end of paragraph or you somehow have deleted the hard return from the segment.

If you post a screenshot or send me the file I may be able to provide a clearer answer.
