Shift+Alt+Down Arrow = Select two contiguous segments.
Ctrl+Alt+S = Merge selected segments.

BUT (strange, useless new discovery)

Ctrl+Alt+Down Arrow = Turns everything within the SDL Trados Studio 2011 *upside down*, as well as all the elements (task bar, etc.) in Windows Vista.

If you want to change back to righ way up, then
Ctrl+Alt+Up Arrow
does the trick.

Has this ever happened to anyone else?

Yes, Wordfasters have known about this for many years as well. Your computer's monitor's graphics card's driver's application's settings dialog has "hotkeys" enabled which turns the screen upside down if you press a certain hotkey that they manufacturers think no-one would ever use for anything else. Solution: find that dialog, and disable "hotkeys".

Thanks Samuel Sep 4, 2013

Ha, ha!

Well, there is always someone in the bunch to disprove the general theory.

Thank you for the solution.
