When I close a translation unit to open a new one, I used to have both source text (in blue) and target text (in green) visible. However, now I get a "clean" document straight away. How can I set up Workbench to show both source and target units?

Thanks
Christina

The source is in hidden text. To display hidden text in Word, go to tools/options, view tab and select "hidden text"

Try this Jul 24, 2003

In order to view the source text, the option "Show Hidden Text" should be selected in Word. Check if this option is deselected by mistake.

Christina,
It's not about pressing a wrong button by mistake. You have certain settings in Tools - Options - View.
The little box next to "Hidden Text" should be checked for you to be able to see both the source and the target text in a Trados rtf file.

regards,
Csaba
