Trados 7 under Parallels: clipboard failure
Thread poster: electrus

Apologies if this is not the right forum. This post is to people who use Trados on a Mac.

I've been using very successfully Trados 7 on XP running under Parallels on Mac OSX 10 (MacBook Pro). I also use an older version of MS Office with it (MS Word 2002).

Increasingly and erratically I get an error message in Trados called "-2147221040 OpenClipboard failed". This results in a damaged Word file which isn't really fixed by the Fix command in Trados at all.

My question is for anyone with experience of using this set-up: is there a way to control the clipboard or allocating memory to it? At the same time as I get this message, I can no longer copy stuff from Windows to Mac (e.g. copying text in Word and pasting into an application running under Mac OS).

Many thanks for any suggestions.
