I am working with Trados 5 and Windows 2002.
Can you please be more specific as to your software versions?
- Which version of Trados (the full version, including the build number, please)?
- Which version of Word?
Windows 2002 doesn't exist... are you referring to Windows XP?
Today I worked on a text with many footnotes, with which I kept having problems (alt and no. didn't always work etc.).
Is this a help file (in RTF format)?
If that is the case, are you aware of special handling required with RTF help files? Check the workflow set out in the File Formats Reference Guide, which is available for download from TranslationZone.
After one of the problems, my trados toolbar disappeared. Even after I reloaded Trados per add-ins, it did not return. I do get the little flagman, and when I click on it, I get the word "Trados", but not the icons.
All the other word toolbars are there. And I can use the keyboard to open and close etc. segments.
Does anybody have any idea what I need to do to get the icons back?
Check this article from the Trados KB. Be sure to take appropriate precautions before editing registry entries.
