Hi folks,

Are floating windows for the TM. glossary, concordance etc. possible at all? I have looked everywhere but cannot find any such option. I have two large monitors and I would like to have the editor window on one screen and all additional windows at the other one.

Thanks,
Natalia

The pop-up concordance window can be moved anywhere Dec 6, 2013

Natalia,

If you are talking about the translation results window, it's not removable but you have the option of having it display on top or on the right side using F11.

If you do concordance search (Ctrl+K), the search results window pops up and you can move it to your second monitor.

Thanks, Chun-yi!

Good to know that it is possible to remove at least one window from the overcrowded editor...

Other things to try... Dec 7, 2013

Hi Natalie,

In fact, MemoQ is very customizable. If you find the Editor overcrowded, you can try playing with different settings under Tools>Appearance to change fonts and colors and to make current segment stand out from the rest of the segments.
Have fun!

Done all this already Dec 7, 2013

Hi Chun-yi, I have already adjusted everything in accordance with my preferences. Moving windows to another monitor is something I am missing very much. I got used to something like this: http://www.proz.com/post/1717231#1717231

It's a pity that it is impossible to do the same in MemoQ.
