hi all,

I am running WXP with Word 2000 and Trados 6.5.

Have recently started getting this glitch: I try to close seg/open next... and I get this error: "Run-time error 4605. This method is not available because the Clipboard is empty or not valid". At the same time the Trados "cursor mark" ("-{}-") is inserted in the following seg and the field and hidden chars made visible. Have to close seg and open again.

I have in the past examined some of the VB code involved in Trados. Once I even managed to cure a persistent glitch by manually changing a value from true to false... but it took hours of experimenting.

Anyone ever come across this and got a cure? I'll give it a few hours and then try reinstalling Word and Trados, I suppose.

One other thing: am using Dragon NS at the same time... but this has never caused any particular interference. I'm pretty sure this is nothing to do with it, and that this is a Trados prob.
