Hi,

I have a very annoying problem with my Trados Studio. I can't bring the Find and Replace window back to the screen (I have two). It is shown on the task bar, but the options restore, minimize and maximize are grey. I have WIndows 7.

How can I bring the window back to the screen?

Thanks in advance,
Hanna

Relaunch Studio May 23, 2011

You probably moved the window to the second monitor and it is not present anymore now, so that the window is at a position that does not exist anymore in your current configuration. This is a well-known problem.
However, AFAIK, the current position of the Find + Replace window is not kept across sessions, so if you restart Studio and hit CTRL-F, you should see your window again.

If, for any reason, this does not work, I suggest you do the following:

1. Close Studio
2. Delete the file 'C:\Users\\AppData\Roaming\SDL\SDL Trados Studio\9.1.0.0\UserSettings.xml'
3. Restart Studio.

You should now be able to get your S+R window on the screen again.

Walter

The other... May 23, 2011

... slightly less drastic optionicon_wink.gif

Is to use the Move feature on the open window as described here:

After clicking Ctrl+F to bring up the Find&Replace window, press Windows key plusthe right or left arrow keys to move it into focus.

If that doesn't work, open the Task Manager (Ctrl+Shift+Escape), expand SDL Trados Studio, right click "find and replace" and select "Bring to Front".

Find & Replace still greyed out May 18, 2015

After pressing Crtl+F, it's visible, but still greyed out. Only the Find box can be invoked. Crtl+H won't work.
Tried both WinKey+arrow and Task Manager (I can't find anything expandable about Studio.)

Please give a hand. Jobs need to be done. Thank you

Updated:
It's solved. By closing the Studio and re-start it. It appears.
I did this only because after trying the measures above, the Studio is acting ODD, e.g. a marked word in a source segment can't be un-marked. Like haunted!

Today it's gone again May 19, 2015

When I start using Studio today, the Find & Replace disappear again.

Yes, it can be brought back by pressing Crtl + F
But Could this problem be truly solved please?

This time, suddenly gone mid-session May 19, 2015

My computer and Studio had been on for several hours, then suddenly "Find and replace" is not there. This time even Crtl +F won't bring it to surface. WinKey+ arrow tried in vain. I have to re-restart Studio. And it's back again.

Just a thought,
Could this be due to my frequent use of both Web Lookup plugin and Find box?

Error upon Ctrl + H May 19, 2015

This time around I've got another situation. The Find & Replace icon is available, but when I click on it or using the Crtl +H shortcut, I only got an error message "InvalidArgument=Value of "1" is not valid for "index".

Only Re-starting Studio can make it work again.

Search + Replace gone missing on Studio 2015 Jun 30, 2016

This morning when I started up Studio 2015 and started working on a new file (no associated project), the search + replace feature was gone. Period. I am not working with two monitors. I have absolutely no idea how this happened, and I can't find any way to fix it. I've looked at the solutions provided in 2011, but they don't seem to work. Can anybody out there help me?
