Does anyone know, how to display descriptive fields in Translators Workbench's Term Recognition panel?
I converted & imported an Excel file into Multiterm with 3 columns: Source Lang, Target Lang, Comment. In Multiterm Convert I set the Comment column to be a descriptive field of Text type, and Workbench displays only source & target terms - but not the comment.
I tried several Entry structures during converting & importing, but none worked.
Can anyone help me how to make WB display comments as well next to the target term?

ps. I know I could write the comment in Excel into the same cell as the term itself, but then I would have to delete it every time when I get the term into Tageditor/Word.
And I could also write the comment into the source term's cell, but then it couldn't be recognized during translation.

Thanks in advance for your answers!
