SDL Trados 2007 8.2 with Vista and Word 2007

Ever since I've been using this particular version of Trados, it refuses to create or open existing segments (created by other translators) in Word headers, footers and text boxes.

Is this governed by some settings? I haven't come across this issue in any of the online forums. I simply have to overwrite any text in these locations as no segment opens up.

Apart from this glitch everything else has been working fine for three years.

Grateful for any hints or suggestions.

What happens when you try to open the segment? Aug 6, 2010

What happens when you open the segment? Do you at least get the yellow background or not?

Did you try to overwrite the TRADOS8.DOTM template in Word's STARTUP folder to see if this changes the behavior?

Nothing happens at all when I try to open the segment Aug 7, 2010

Hello Walter,

Nothing happens at all when I try to open the segment. The page 'jerks' a little, but no yellow background appears. Or, if the segment has been created by another translator, it just doesn't open.

I haven't tried the overwriting that you suggest. That sounds serious...?!

Jackie
