Studio 2009: Attribute text is translated after actual segment

As far as I remember, in Trados 2007 when you had a segment with e.g. alt attribute content, the contents of that attribute were translated in the same segment as the rest of the content.

for example a segment:
1 When ready, select <Img href="Close.jpg" alt="Close button">.

would show up like this in Trados 2007 (brackets indicate locked sections):
1 When ready, select [<Img href="Close.jpg" alt="]Close button[">].

In Studio 2009 the situation is like this:
1 When ready, select [<Img href="Close.jpg" alt="Close button">].
2 Close button

This is a particular issue for Finnish since I need to inflect the translation of "Close button". But because alt content is now translated outside the actual segment (hence out of context), it can be auto-propagated and re-used in a situtation where inflection is not allowed.

Is there any way of translating the attribute content as in Trados 2007?

P.S. I hope my BBCode looks okay....
