Case and Multiterm 7 entries

Hi,

When adding new entries for the same term but for different cases in Multiterm 7, MT always merges the entries, regardless of whether I click 'Add' or 'Update entry'.

What I want is simple: a separate entry for a word with the first letter in lower case and another one with the first letter in upper case. Now I have to toggle through the different versions in the same entry. Worse still, in the MT box in the workbench a duplicate entry occurs, even when I explicitly make sure there is only one entry in the termbase, forcing me to toggle through FOUR options (two of which are duplicates) to go to the next term. (I hope all this makes sense).

Is there a way of getting round this?

Many thanks,

Peter

Yes, I know the scenario of toggling through four options Feb 22, 2008

However, there must be two entries twice over in the termbase, even if one in each case created itself, as it were. You can subsequently delete two of them from the termbase.

Hi Astrid,

I'm afraid I don't quite understand what you mean. You mean there must be one entry for lower case and one entry for upper case?
