Hi everybody,

I just upgraded from SDL Trados Freelance 2006 to 2007 ( Multiterm 2007 on Windows Vista) and now I'm having problems defining default content for text fields in Import Models.

Theoretically it should work (Import Model Wizard, step 2 select field, enter default content), but the content is not taken into account:
1) When I select another field in the entry structure in order to define default content for another field, the previous default content stays in the box
2) The default content is not visible in the preview
3) And, most importantly it does not appear in the entry structure when I want to add terms with this import model

So I tried to go back to my old PC, I copied an .xmd file and loaded the import model in a termbase on the new Pc - this works fine, all the default content appears ... BUT the xmd file cannot be edited anymore (default content box is greyed out and not accessible) in Multiterm 2007...

Has anybody had the same problem? or an explanation for this bug?

Thank you!
