Hi!

I am using Word 2002 and SDL Trados 2006 Freelance.
When translating a table, the target segment is "hidden" (i.e. it appears to be "behind" the line below te source segment), so I can only see the source segment and have to type the target segment blindly. This happens in normal view and page view alike.
What can I do to make the target segments visible without having to change the table layout (because once I entered the target segment, it appears instead of the source, and everything is fine).

Many thanks in advance for your help!
Erik

Your table row size is fixed. Change it in WORD (2000):

With your cusrsor in the table, right click.
Select Table Properties, Row
Check box "Specify height"
Select Row height is At least

Resume Trados

Dear Peter,

thanks a lot, that does the trick! BTW: I guess there's no way of setting this as a default for the whole document instead of having to set it for every single table? Because the document consists of a whole lot of them...

Cheers,
Erik
