Term Recognition Problem with Déjà Vu X2 and X3

Hi fellow translators,

I am using Déjà Vu X2 and X3 and have the same issue with both versions. There seems to be a capitalization issue with the termbase. For some reason, terms that are not capitalized in the termbase do not show up in the AutoSearch window when the source text is capitalized (and vice versa). Database Lookup is set to 60%.

Example:

Termbase = progress note
Source Text = Progress Note

In this case nothing shows up in AutoSearch. This is really weird and annoying. Does anyone else have this problem and is there a fix?

Thanks in advance.

Do you have one or two word short segments in your translation memory; eg

Termbase
progress note: note de progrès

Translation memory
Progress Note: Note de Progrès
or
Progress note: Note de progrès

Source Text = Progress Note

In that case DVX will not display the TB match to decrease "noise".

Thanks so much for the answer. That explains my problem. I was able to fix it by deselecting "Display portions from Translation Memory". This, however, is somewhat counter-productive and defeats the purpose of the TM. Is there a way to display portions from translation memory AND all matches in the termbase?
