Each time I open a new segment, the source window is opened too high and disappears from the screen. I then have to scroll down 6 lines so that I can see both the source and the target window simultaneously. Does anyone know how to fix this problem?

You don't provide much information about your problem, but based on only this, I believe you need to change to *normal* display mode.

Do you have scroll lock active? Jul 6, 2004

And what are your settings under "view" in Word?
I work both in layout and normal view mode and do not have this problem. Although working in layout mode sometimes the source windows is not shown, as it appears on a page above. This does not happen in normal view.

Regards
Jerzy

Switch "View Modes" Jul 6, 2004

Usually, switching between "normal" & "print layout" modes solves the problem.

Or, if you are working with tables, then you should modify the table properties.

To this end, select table, then click Table Properties, and uncheck all boxes specifying cell, row, and column sizes.

And then, Table/Table Properties/Options
There, be sure that the "Automatic resize to fit contents" is checked.
This would enable you to use trados with tables.

h.i.h.

This might help too Jul 7, 2004

Set your pc standard screen size to a size a bit bigger than you're used to....
