A good question. I really don't know...

Does anyone know what it is that I am doing that would constitute a change to the .dot file? This only occurs from time to time, when I close Word. I sometimes mess about with the positioning of the Trados toolbars in Word. Would that be recorded in the template? Could I potentially do some serious damage by saying 'yes'?

By the way, on a different topic, on Ralf's advice, I've started using TagEditor for Powerpoint files and it has changed my life. Thanks a lot for the tip! I'd recommend everyone to do the same.

Don't save changes Sep 9, 2004

Hi Alan,
I wouldn't save changes to the Trados template. Doing so will not necessarily result in damage, though.

HTH, Ralf

Wordfast/Trados Sep 9, 2004

If you have Wordfast installed this message pops up if you've been using TRADOS and WF at the same time. DO NOT CLICK YES! It makes a mess of WF and you'll have to reinstall WF (not that much work, but work nonetheless).
