Hi,
I use Trados 5.5 and have never had any problems until yesterday, when, loaded correctly, etc., it started to delete the source text as I moved on to the next section. Also, the tog taggles and percentages are invisible. All I see is the sentence I am working on. Trados is still running, as it continued to find matches, but without the percentage it's more difficult to work. Has anyone else had a similar experience and know how to get my Trados back to visibility?
Thanks and best regards,
Edward Tully

After reading other threads, I have used the "reverse P" and can now see evrything OK, but I wish to see both the source and target sentences, percentages etc. in Trados and not all the Paragraph symbols, dots between words etc. from Word as well! Any ideas?

Dear Edward,

I have moved this thread to the SDL Trados Support, the appropriate forum for any issue regarding this software. Also, the answer to your problem is easy to find in this forum.

Dear Edwards,

I'm glad that you have managed to find part of the solution.

Now, to remove some more of those annoying symbols (in particular I find particularly annoying the small showing the space between words), go again to Tools > Options > Show, in Word, and untick the options "Spaces" or "Tabs" or any other you prefer to not see.

bye
Gianfranco
