Hello,

I pressed some key combination by chance, and then found this strange rectangle aroud my segment:

I do not know what is this all about?

(I use SDL Trados Studio 2009 SP3)

activates the segment for selecting with keyboard.
If you now press ALT+ARROW DOWN (with default settings obviously - otherwise the shortcu may differ), you will have the segment before and the next segment selected, so that you can for example merge them.
