Hi all,

I have a really embarrassing problem. I have managed to misplace the auto search window (the one showing TD and TM matches) in Idiom WorldServer Desktop Workbench.

-Yes, I have tried to find it again by deselecting and selecting it again from View menu, doesn't work. When I select to View it, all the other windows go passive as the supposed auto search window activates somewhere, but it just isn't anywhere...
-Yes, I have tried to minimize all the other windows to see if the auto search was lurking underneath. It isn't.

Any tips as to how I could find it again? The matches are still "sent" to the target segment if I choose Auto Assemble and/or Auto Propagate from Translation menu, but I'd really love to get the window back since if there are for example many fuzzy matches, only one of them (or none) are sent to the target segment.

Any help is highly appreciated!

-Hanna L

Same problem, did you manage to solve it? Sep 8, 2010

Hello Hanna,

I just did the same and cannot find that window anywhere. I have project with dozens of partial matches and I cannot see anything.

Did you manage to solve it somehow?

Thank you very much indeed!!!

Ruth

Same problem Feb 17, 2011

I tried with closing and relaunching the application, activating and disabling the "AutoSeach window" option, opening a different project, etc. Does anybody know how to fix this?

Idiom problem Feb 17, 2011

Hi all,
I did manage to solve the problem, but it was such a long time ago that I don't remember what I did... I vaguely remember double clicking around the bottom part of the screen, when suddenly these little icons on the bottom, sides and middle of the screen popped up. When I moved the cursor to the bottom one, the window reappeared.

I'm really sorry that I can't help you more, it was really annoying to lose the window, but if I managed to get it back, so will you!

Hi Hanna, thanks for replying! I'm trying your suggestion but haven't been able to make it pop up again. It's a real pity.
Have a nice day!

Worked for me Jul 27, 2011

Phew, I had the same problem and in my case the auto search window had somehow gotten so small that the windows toolbar/taskbar on the bottom (where you see your open windows etc.) was blocking it. I minimized it to as small as I could and was able to pick up the auto search window and bring it back up and make it bigger. Very frustrating. Hope this helps.

Answer's in the task bar Jul 28, 2011

Hello all, I am a W7 user and had the same issue. I right-clicked the task bar and chose the option "Properties" within, in the Task Bar tab, I chose the option Superior/Top for the prompt "Location of Task Bar on the Screen" and there was my sneaky Auto Search window... I believe in Windows XP you can move the bar around with the mouse. Hope it helps!

Regards,
Eva
