I recently installed Trados Workbench and Multiterm. I'm not sure if there's a causal link here, but soon after that MS Word (from Office 2003) started acting a little strange. All of a sudden, some of the gray fields in the Standard and Formatting toolbars (font, font size and zoom) begin to flicker, as if dancingicon_smile.gif This does not happen all the time. So far I haven't been able to detect any particular pattern to it in terms of when this tends to happen. I've tried different tacks to get rid of the problem, but nothing seems to work. Anybody had this problem before? Thanks!

Hi Pavle,

I met the same problem, and I want to know how to get rid of it too.

dancing! Oct 23, 2008

I come in to see some high-tech strippers:) Can they do some lap-dance?

Same problem with Word 2000 Oct 23, 2008

Coincidence, it started soon after I installed Trados Synergy.
