Multiterm Termbase - Multiple occurences of same word

Perhaps this is a stupid question but I have found that with Studio 2011 and Multiterm 2001, if a term from the termbase is repeated several times in a single sentence, for example:

setup parameters, configuration parameters, calculation parameters

If the word parameters is in my termbase, it only comes up the first time. After I accept it, the second and third times I have to write in the word "parameters" in because it seems, Multiterm thinks it has already been used.

Is there a way around this? It can really be a waste of time and I have found this occurs quite frequently in the type of texts I do.

Thanks in advance
Eileen

Dear Eileen,

I'm using the German UI, so you may have to search a bit, but anyway:

Go to Extras - Options. In the list on the left side, choose Autosuggest. You'll then find the option you're looking for on the right side. You want the option unchecked.

Kind regards,
Erik

The solution described by Erik works!

Actually, I just asked the same question, so it's totally not a stupid question

Thanks Erik Jun 3, 2012

Just what the doctor ordered. I knew it had to be in there somewhere.
Thanks

I just ran into the same problem as Eileen. Thanks for your suggestion, I've never solved a Trados 'problem' this quick before
