Hi there!

I have recently started using Studio 2011 and MultiTerm 2011, and although I find using this software a lot easier that I thought it would be, there are still a few things that I am having trouble figuring out by myself.

Among them, I'd like to know how you insert the same term twice from your MultiTerm glossary?
For example, I have the following sentence:

This guideline gives guidance to XXXXX control points to refresh their current position
information when a XXXXX reports a transport state change to PAUSED_PLAYBACK or
STOPPED.

When I hit Tab to insert the translation for "XXXXX" the first time Studio does so immediately, but it does not suggest the translation a second time when I need it later in the sentence.

Do you have to change something in the settings?

If you're using the termbase suggestions from autosuggest, then try tools>options>autosuggest and disable "hide suggestions that have already been used".

Yes, I've wondered about this too.

If anyone knows the answer it would spare a long, ultimately fruitless search on the net and forums!!!!

Well, if I have a recurring term, then I click onto the box with the arrow pointing to the right under 'translation results'.
