Hi everyone,

I'd be very grateful for any hints on the following issue - for the past couple of days I've been experiencing problems with the SDL Trados Preview function. Doesn't make any difference, if I try the "Print preview" bilingual function or the "View in web browser as target" function, the result in browser is always the very same - Page not found.

For all I know, my procedure hasn't change a bit. I finish the translation and:
1) press F8 and go through the warnings displayed,
2) hit ctrl+P for Print preview and save the pdf
3) hit the tab View target (must switch between Print preview and Web browser XML), copy and paste the text, modify and save the word document,
4) save the target language file,
5) close the project

This problem sometimes occured, but it was easily solved by going to the File menu and hitting the Print preview from there or by changing the View in tab from Web browser to Print preview on the main screen. Somehow none of these seem to work now.

Possibly useful remarks:
- I've tried restarting the SDL
- I've tried restarting the notebook
- no system/application updates installed in the meantime
- no configuration changed
- I'm using the WIN XP SP3 and Chrome

Maybe I'm missing something and the solution is evident, but unfortunately I'm unable to find it.

Thanks for any help,
Pali zihac
