I cannot seem to find a keyboard shortcut - or any way - of adding terms from my translation into my termbase (using Mac OSX with Bootcamp etc.).
With Windows you can select the source and target term, right click and then select 'add term'... but I can't figure out how to do it on the Mac keyboard, nor can I find anything in the menus, when I'm in Editor, that will do it for me.
Anyone figured this out? Thanks.

(IMac, Parallels 8.0, wireless keyboard):

Like in Windows, select the source and target term by subsequent left clicks, right click one of them and then select 'add term'.

Multiterm must be running and a termbase has to be activated, though.

Thanks Claus. Doh! I'm relatively new to the Mac and still trying to get all my settings right. I was 'clicking' on the right corner of the trackpad rather than tapping with two fingers, which is what the setting was. Thanks, will continue to learn!
Have you found a better way of Confirm & Move to Next Segment than using Ctrl+enter? Shift+enter doesn't work and the Ctrl button is on the left of the keyboard, so it's much more cumbersome.
