it is normal that the search function in the original text is disabled?
The function only works in the target text and I can't find how to activate it for the original text.
I have not the rights in order to change system adjustements and I'm working offline.
Thank you in advance - Chiara

Use Cross-View Aug 4, 2010

Hello, Chiara,

I too work offline, and have found that using the CrossView function on the right of the pane works. You can use the find funcion there, both for source and target, and lots of other useful information, such as document structure, quality management, progress information with the percentage you have translated, and how much you have to translate. My only complaint is that I have to use the mouse, instead of a key shortcut.

I hope this helps.
