Hello,

for some reason ctrl+F (Find and Replace) is hidden, I can open ot but I can't see it on the screen. Have anyone had this problem and how to I bring it on the screen?

I can't use the options resize or move etc.

Thanks,
Hanna

A couple of questions Mar 16, 2011

Is "Standard" selected in View>Toolbars>Standard?

Have you tried with Edit>Find? If yes, is it working?

Are Ctrl+F and Ctrl+H working?

What kind of problems do you have while resizing/moving?

The search window has been moved Mar 16, 2011

Did you use a second screen on your computer?
What you need is to locate the window and move it back.
If you have had a second screen, attach it again.
If not, we will have to reset the settings for Studio.

I'm not sure if this is relevant here, but the whole disconnected extra screen issue has been solved in Windows 7.
The problem seems to arise much less often to begin with, and when it does occur, you can just Alt-Tab to the window in question, use Win-up to full-screen it, at which point it goes full screen on the actual monitor you do have, not the nonexistent one, and then grab the top of the window and drag it down to take it out of fullscreen mode and keep it on your monitor. In XP, pressing the resize button of the window took it back to the nonexistent screen so you could either leave the app fullscreen or connect the external monitor to be able to drag it back to the correct place; now, with the introduction of dragging down to exit fullscreen, you can resolve the problem without using the external monitor.

This applies to windows that can go fullscreen. I'm afraid the Trados search window can't, but you can still try Win-left and Win-right to move it around.

Hey, thanks for that tip FarkasAndras, I've always spent time locating my search window and getting it on the right screen before unplugging my external monitor from my laptop when I'm about to move it. Now I can just Win-left, Win-right. It works brilliantly !

Same here, thank you Andras!

@Hanna:
in case you can't locate the window, did you try to reset the whole windows layout (view>reset windows layout)? This worked for me each time I had 'lost' a window (well, closed or moved it in fact).
