Hi all,

Trados XP

I am familiar with the translation of footnotes with Trados and Word but encounter a new problem right now. Just after the footnote opened in a new Word window, I got a Visual Basic error message. The only thing I could do was to click OK.

When I then translated the FN and typed Alt + + to return to the main window, the sub-segment only closed and I can not return to the main Word window. I don't want to close the FN window manually, because I know it's a bad idea, but now I'm stuck with my 2 windows openedn and can not do anything. If I close the FN window, I won't have any Trados toolbar anymore in the main window and will have to edit my registry... so what to do ?

Any hint much appreciated... deadline tomorrow

A solution Oct 2, 2005

Well, for info, I found a temporary solution by "playing around" with the last option described here : (toggle the "Windows in taskbar" box in the View options of Word) and it worked perfectly. Great because of the tight deadline.
But this Visual Basic error is still a mystery to me.

Thanks again,

The exact message is "Microsoft Visual basic
Runtime error 5825
The object has been deleted"
or something similar.
I can only click "End".

It is a reccuring message in this document...
