Hello everyone.

Although I normally just use the 2007 workbench since most of my projects reach me in Word format, I'm currently translating a spreadsheet in Studio 2009. The annoying problem I am having is that, when I select a word in the target segment (by double-clicking on it or dragging the mouse over it), either to copy and paste or to overwrite, the source segment is automatically copied into the target, overwriting my target text. I can retrieve the target text with ctrl+z, but nevertheless it is very annoying and means I can't select text in the target segment.

Many thanks for your help.

Simon

Check that the box is unclicked... Apr 8, 2010

.... in Translation Memories (bottom left), Tools-> Options -> Editor -> Automation -> Under Translation Memory "Copy source when no match is found".

That could be your problem!

Software conflict Apr 8, 2010

Thanks Emma, the solution was in the thread you mention.

The problem I am having is being caused by conflict with a dictionary pogramme. Unfortunately even after changing the activation settings in the dictionary software the problem persists, but at least I can overcome it by turning off the dictionary completely.
