Hi there!
I just installed DVX2 standard on another computer and had to run it as a trial for a while, since I couldn't access the atril servers. When I wanted to add pairs to the termbase, The fields for attirbutes (number, genus etc.) and context remained blank.
Unfortunately, now that I did activate the copy, that problem persists and I have no idea why or how to do anything about it. Does anyone else?

Did you also copy your settings to the new machine? Aug 17, 2015

I haven't done so in a long time (I got lazy and stopped keeping my DVX settings in sync between my desktop and my laptop), but I do remember, back when I was being thorough, that I would copy not only my databases but also the up-to-date settings each time I switched between machines. (I do still update the databases when I switch machines.)

Frankly, I'm not entirely sure what you mean. I never personalised the program much, though.
Just checked in the places that might be the settings you are talking about (project->settings and extras->options) and nothing seemed to be linked to the problem.
