Hi all,

I have a simple question: if in a segment i see 2/3 ters highlighted in red (with translation in multiterm), can I press a shortcut to drop directly in target segment without the need to have the term pane opened and select the term with the mouse? In wordfas it's ctrl+alt+ left/right/down. Is there an equivalent?

Which Trados Version? May 9, 2013

I guess that depends on the Trados version you are using.
In Studio I don't know such a shortcut, but you have the Autosuggest feature for this purpose. Just type the first (first two...) letter(s) of the term and it will appear as an "Autosuggest suggestion". Then press "Enter" and the term is inserted.
