Hello

I mentioned this in another thread but haven't found an answer. When pressing F3 to perform a Concordance search in Studio 2011, the softweare doesn't respond properly.

When I press F3, it searches for old search terms from earlier in the document. I have to click the cursor elsewhere, double-click on the desired term again and press F3 again. I have to do this five or six times before it will respond appropriately.

I seem to remember the same issue in 2009 until an update/patch resolved it. Does anyone else have this problem and if so what can I do about it?

Thanks in advance.

Yes, we all have it May 9, 2012

I experience it from the beginning and got used to it, some people said it is the main reason they will not upgrade to or buy Studio 2011. The problem's been mentioned in several threads, just do some search. (problem with F3 or - for SDLX layout - F7 concordance search). They promised to fix it, but not yet. Love it or leave it, then.
regards,
Adam

Ok, thanks Adam.

I'm so glad they've included old bugs in the new software, very nostalgic.

Highlight the term, wait 1-2 seconds and then press F3. This should take care of the problem. At least it works for me.

Good workaround - thanks! Jun 7, 2012

I've just upgraded to Studio 2011 and it looks like this problem still exists. However, I just wanted to say thanks to Alina - Maria for the suggested workaround - still not ideal but far less frustrating than having to press F3 multiple times before the system responds correctly so thanks for sharing!

Yes, thanks to Alina-Maria for that.

However, it doesn't work every time for me. Sometimes I have to click elsewhere, try again, click elsewhere, try again, and so on.

Studio and its otherwise excellent features are all about speeding up translation, yet this slows me right down so I hope SDL sort it out.
