Trados Studio 2009: How to add new fields to an existing TM

Hi there,

how is that possible?

If I open the settings of a tm, which is opened in the TM-section of studio, I can't edit the part of the field settings. Studio says, that the TM is open for maintenance and therefore these settings can not be edited. But I can't find another way to open the TM settings of an existing TM.

Can anyone help?

The hint is already there... Feb 8, 2010

close the TM in maintenance.
Now you will just have it in the list of TMs in the navigation pane.
Right-click on it, chose settings and change whatever you like.

Hi Jerzy,


Now I knew it must work after your posting.

And at once found out how to close the maintenance - strange I did not find it before. Probably because I did not open the maintenance explicitly, but only the TM. Ok, I just have to close the maintenance view - that's all.
