I realise that this must have been the case for a while now, but I never noticed it, because the termbase keeps giving me its term automatically. I made a new autosuggest dictionary, to make sure there is one. That worked without a hitch.

The settings are okay: Autosuggest is activated and the Autosuggest dictionary is the first source in the list.

Any ideas?

I'm not sure.... May 7, 2013

... what the problem is Marinus. You said AutoSuggest stopped working but then said you still get terms automatically. So do you mean that the resuilts from the AutoSuggest Dictionary are not automatically coming? I say this as AutoSuggest comprises three sources... the Dictionary, the termbase and the autotext.

So if terms are working but not the dictionary then perhaps you only added the dictionary in Tools -> Options so your existing Projects are not using it? If this is the case try activating your Project and then go to Project Settings and add your dictionary.

Existing Projects won't be affected by some changes in Tools -> Options.

AutoSuggest Dictionary... May 7, 2013

.. is probably what I should have said. The autosuggest function per se works, because, as you say, MT terms keep being suggested.

Okay, so the project settings is where I must look. Indeed! No dictionaries added. That was a quick fix.

Thank you very much!
