I am working in Trados 2011. Is there any way to customize the editor view so that the source and target are displayed on top of each other as opposed to side-by-side?

Hi David,

If you're looking for the sort of screen layout you had with Word/Workbench, then I don't think there is that possibility in Studio (someone may be able to correct me there, though).

Having used Studio for a while now, I wouldn't even want to go back to the Workbench layout. You can get much more information on your screen with Studio than was ever possible with Word/Workbench, although you have to play around with the dockable windows to find the configuratio

Hi David,

If you're looking for the sort of screen layout you had with Word/Workbench, then I don't think there is that possibility in Studio (someone may be able to correct me there, though).

Having used Studio for a while now, I wouldn't even want to go back to the Workbench layout. You can get much more information on your screen with Studio than was ever possible with Word/Workbench, although you have to play around with the dockable windows to find the configuration that works for you.

Similarly, I quickly came to the same conclusion when I was using DVX. Provided you have a decent screen and can keep all the windows you need in view, side by side beats above and below every time.

FWIW

Not possible Nov 1, 2011

Hello David,
this is currently not possible in Studio. Perhaps you might want to vote for my idea here.
