Hello!

I've got a little problem while working in Idiom WorldServer. It appears that some segments may have some kind of character limit and I'm unable to insert target text longer than given number of characters, even if source segment is longer. Breaking the line helps sometimes but it seems that most segments have 180 characters limit.

Does anyone know what can be done about that? I'm pretty new to this tool and I probably have missed some setting. Alas, I was unable to find an answer in documentation and SDL help.

Thank you in advance

Just in case someone else is having the same problem...

The technician of the company I work for solved it. Just run Idiom as administrator (it seems the memory allocation is limited if you don't give the program permissions).
