My SDL Trados Studio 2011 application just randomly generated an XML preview of a translation I was working on.

I was halfway through a translation of a newsletter when a preview of my translation suddenly opened in an Internet Explorer browser. The original newsletter is a PDF source. This has (I think) been converted into an XML file and saved as a TagEditor ttx file for translation in Studio. Therefore, it's not surprising that the preview was generated in Internet Explorer. My question is: how could this have happened. As far as I'm aware, I didn't hit any key combinations by accident. Has anyone else ever known anything similar happen?

ctrl+p would do it Apr 9, 2012

Hi,

Perhaps you just caught these keys whilst working? Did this ever happen again or was it just the one off?

Regards

Paul

Hi Paul,

thanks for the reply. Yeah, I discovered it must have been Ctrl+P. I'm pretty sure I didn't hit that shortcut though. What's strange, however, is I've noticed other times when the keyboard acts like the Ctrl key is suddenly depressed. I took a look at the Accessibility settings on my PC. All the shortcuts were deactivated as normal, but I noticed the checkbox "Press modifier key twice to lock" was checked. I unchecked it, and Studio seems to be fine now.... But... another strange thing is I tried rechecking the box and replicating the problem, but I can't do it... odd!

Thanks
D
