I have just started using Trados 2011.

I don't know, maybe it's me... But the programme has this debilitating feature - there is always this pop-up window, saying when the last revision was done to a segment.

So, using my mouse I cut and paste within the segment, then want to reread what I've got. In a second there is this pop-up, blocking part of the text, so I need to move the mouse to a different segment.

Really irritating. Wonder, how any person, who has translated at least 1 page in the programme, could not but notice it.)))) Kudos on upgrading, lol. No such thing in 09))) So, makes you wonder...

Can anyone tell me, how to switch it off?

Took a while to guess what you meant... Aug 19, 2012

... but I think it sounds as though you have tracked changes turned on. If you don't want them just toggle them off in the toolbar, or use ctrl+alt+F9 if you didn't change the default shortcut.

Doesn't the "debilitating" pop up disappear after a second or two anyway?

Regards

Paul

trados has a sense of humor Aug 19, 2012

Now, that I have used ctrl+atl+F9, I cannot translate the next segments - the message pops up, saying "you can't edit the segment when the track changes is off", and the first pop up is back. Help)))

Sorry for these many messages.

It kinda goes back after a while for the first mode - the popup with the revision info...

Pop up when mouse is in status column Aug 20, 2012

You're not going mad - yes there is a little pop-up box that displays when your mouse is over the status column. It shows the "Translation Details" i.e. status, origin, system, score. And it covers the segment that you're editing - so it's annoying.

I'm not sure if you can change the window layout to move this column?
