This question may have been posted before, although I couldn't find it in the archives, so I already apologize if this is a re-post.
I'm encountering the following problem:

when I translate documents in Word 2007, using Trados 2007 (WB version & Multiterm, I am unable to add new terms to my Multiterm database using the shortcut combination CTRL+ALT+M. The strange thing is that I can add terms using the corresponding button in the Multiterm toolbar... I tried the shortcut in TagEditor & there it works fine, but as I have to be very careful with the lay out of the document I work on at the moment, I prefer translating it in Word instead of using TagEditor (to avoid surprises after the clean-up).
Have any of you encountered the same problem & do you know how it can be resolved?

Many thanks in advance!
