Dear All,

I must have inadvertedly clicked on something - now my usual working environment is gone, and I cannot get it back.

I work in DVX Professional, and my preferred environment is when I enter the translation in a separate window in the bottom left corner of the window. In the middle and top left section I should have the two columns (source and target), while on the right I should have the File Navigator on the top and the list of terminology matches in the bottom.

The current situation is different. The window consists of two parts. On the left I have the two columns, with the editing taking place right in the list of sentences, i.e. not in a separate area. On the right, I only have the File Navigator.

What's even more annoying is that all Auto functions are gone. When I open Tools - Option - Environment, almost all checkboxes are empty. Even if I check the checkboxes for "Edit in separate area", as well as all four Auto functions, these changes do not take effect. When I open the same Environment tag again, everything is empty again.

I've had the same problem before, but somehow it always solved misteriously. This time I've trying different things, but nothing seems to work.

As usual, deadlines are loomingicon_smile.gif

thanks for any useful hint

Csaba

Use MenuLayoutDelete Apr 27, 2008

Please read the following

http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/CAT-Tools/DéjàVu_X/FAQ/How_to_make_the_interface_look_normal?

This will reset all your settings. But then you will be able to customize them again.

HTH

I simply closed down DVX and reopened it, and the interface now looks normal.

I still have no clue what caused the problem...

Wow! My problem solved before I got a chance to ask! Apr 28, 2008

I've just downloaded that MenuLayoutDelete tool. I can't wait to use it on my laptop! And here I thought I was going to have to either be stuck with that really weird format or keep on using my desktop instead.

Fortunately, I have had the right problem for this solution.icon_smile.gif

Unfortunately, when clicking on the .reg file, it was only opened in my editor so I could not execute it, not even via the context menu, and I did not find a way to remove this setting. (I must have changed it some time ago to prevent accidential changes of the registry.)icon_frown.gif

Fortunately, I just needed to rename the 2 mentionend keys in regedit, and my DVX has its good old layout again (I was starting to feel spastic when trying to move the windows back in place.)icon_smile.gif

BTW, you cannot download the file before you will be an approved member of this yahoo group..

You may associate back the reg files with the registry editor.
Open a folder in Explorer
Tools (menu)
Folder options
File types (3rd tab)
Search for REG in the list
Change (button)

Cheers
GG

That one worked fine for me Apr 28, 2008

Thanks! Now my "Properties" window is sitting back under my "File Navigator" window as it should!
