I'm using Windows 8 and SDL Trados Studio 2011. I migrated from my Windows 7 laptop over to a desktop PC. The transition of files, TM, termbank etc has worked okay but I am now having a bit of a problem with the preview window.

When I've concluded the translation and am doing the re-through, I like to read from the preview window in real time so that I can make changes at the same time. But as soon as I make a change a pop-up window opens asking me where I want to store something or other, presumably the preview data. This used to be done automatically (I assume) as a temporary data file but now I have to give the file a name and place where to store it.

Perhaps there is a setting I've not altered somewhere so that this can be done automatically again.

Any suggestions?

having this issue at all.
It is really irritating as I cannot make alterations to the original text without having to store the preview file again for each segment altered. If I use the same file name to store it under I have to confirm I want to store over the old file.
Why is it not generating a .tmp file?
