I guess experienced Trados users have considered or done this, but I thought I’d post the suggestion anyway for other newbies like myself.
Anyway, I find it really distracts from my typing to scroll through the autosuggest terms using the conventional arrow keys so I remapped them using KeyTweak
Personally I remapped them to the two keys to the left of “Enter” (their original function can be remapped to elsewhere). I still find it slow to use the new keys but when it becomes second nature, it guess it’ll beat moving the whole hand over to reach the normal arrow keys, which seriously interrupts typing flow.
Anyway, I thought I’d share that even though it’s probably old-hat.
