Hello,
I user Concordance Search all the time, usually by entering a term in the input field. This is what I did for "Project A" yesterday, and all prior projects. This morning, I was asked to edit "Project B", which completely changed my view (for example, it displayed a window for Termbase, but I'm not using MultiTerm). When I went back to Project A this afternoon, this modified view remained. I manually opened Concordance Search under View, and dragged the window where I like it on the interface. But, this concordance window no longer has a text input field. I can do concordance by highlighting the source term and pressing F3, but I like being able to search by entering the text. does anyone know how to bring this feature back? Am I using the wrong Concordance? Thank you for your assistance.

Sounds like you need to reset... Nov 1, 2012

... your windows. Go to View -> Reset Window Layout when you are in the Editor View.

I tried that Nov 1, 2012

I did that, twice in fact. It reset me back to the initial view I had after "Project B".

Try this.... Nov 1, 2012

... it may work. I haven't seen the reset window layout fail yet so this is worth a try.


  1. Exit SDL Trados Studio.
  2. Browse to the relevant directory.
    - Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\[USERNAME]\Application Data\SDL\SDL Trados Studio\[VERSIONNUMBER]
    - Windows Vista/7: C:\Users\[USERNAME]\AppData\Roaming\SDL\SDL Trados Studio\[VERSIONNUMBER]
  3. Here you find the following 3 files:
    - BaseSettings.xml
    - plugincache.xml
    - UserSettings.xml
  4. Delete all 3 files.


This will reset SDL Trados Studio to the factory defaults but may resolve the problem.

Regards

Paul

Thank you for your help Nov 2, 2012

I opened an earlier project with everything set the way I wanted. That put the view back as well.
I did that with the A project, not sure what happened, just happy it's fixed.
