I can't believe the developers used these old style buttons in the 'translate single document' explorer window on purpose:



I'm thinking Trados should have spent a bit more time polishing this version and waiting till 2014 to release 2014!

I wish you knew... Oct 8, 2013

... how to make smaller images, but aside from that I have no clue what you are referring to here? I thought I knew until I saw your screenshot.

It must just be me then... Oct 8, 2013

... but those three icons next to the 'look-in' bar look decidedly dated. Purely cosmetic of course. (And sorry about the image, I thought it had been cropped.) Of course the other comment does not refer to this cosmetic error (if it is one), but to all the other bugs that are being reported on these pages (and in particular the ones I'm suffering from!).

Regards,

Olly

I think it is you... Oct 8, 2013

... or at least your version of Windows. This dialogue box comes from Windows and not from Studio. I see this:

I'm no expert... Oct 8, 2013

... but I'm pretty sure that's no W8 style.

Well... Oct 8, 2013

Olly, you are aware this is a system window, which has nothing to do with Studio?

No I didn't know that. So Studio's developers didn't do it. But it's still weird and I don't see it in any other windows.

Not happening for me in Win 8 Oct 8, 2013

So I don't know how you managed to get these buttons, Olly!

Quite interesting though... Oct 8, 2013

... and Emma Goldsmith mentioned to me that she sees the old styles too in W7 using a Spanish interface. So if it wasn't for the fact the text in the dialogue for Olly was English I was wondering...

I'll make some enquiries and see if we can resolve this mystery... if we have nothing better to do of course!

Regards

Do you use Classic Shell... Oct 8, 2013

or any other program that add and/or change the Windows 8 File Explorer (like a third-party theme)?
In Windows 7 that could be caused by switching the the Windows Classic Theme (the one that looks like Windows 95-2000), I think.

I'm currently on Windows 8 and have the new style icons. This is interesting. Does this happen with Open/Save file dialog boxes of other softwares?

Classic shell Oct 8, 2013

I do indeed use classic shell, though as I mentioned, I don't see this in other dialogues. But maybe classic shell is the place to look...
