Hi, I am trying to work with the example termbase provided with SDL, 'Printers'; I manage to open it with one of the projects I've been working with, but I get an error message or warning saying that the index has changed since it was created, and needs to be verified (which, of course, I have no idea how to do ha ha).

I ignored that and carried on regardless; and was trying to see if I could add terms to it, to see how that worked. It seemed OK, I did a save, and got some very scarey index errors in my project files, the Editor pane showed a big red X and I panicked a bit, but it seems OK after closing and re-opening; however the terms are not updated to the termbase.

Is this as expected, i.e. the ONLY way we can work with termbases is actually to purchase the MultiTerm product, even if we're just lone-translators? It is not the impression I get from the help file, either.

Am I just doing it wrong?
