After a computer crash and re-installing Trados Suite 2009, the mouse behavior is different from before. I normally doubleclicked on a source word to select it and rightclicked to add a new term to the termbase. Now a doubleclick on any word in the source segment copies the complete segment to the target segment, overwriting existing text.

I can't find an option in the software to change that behavior. Any ideas?

Hi Feb 10, 2010

I have the same problem - using unhappily shift + cursor keys:(! Let me know please if you come to some solution.

Even with the the Ctrl+Arrow keys a selected word means the source segment is copied to the target. Now discovered that selecting any word in the target, also copies the entire source to the target...

To be honest: I can't work with Trados this way...
