Is it possible to Cut & Paste a term from another application (e.g. Word or browser) into Multiterm. I just can't seem to find any info on this one. Normally, I would simple right-click and paste the term.

Any thoughts?

Word template Nov 24, 2004

Hi,
You have a template in Word that allows you to connect to a termbase - highlight the source term, click on the icon showing a pencil and enter the target term. In this way, you can even add an attribute.

To use "cut&paste" from a browser, you need to add a new term entry first - while this is open, you can paste terms.

HTH, Ralf

adding terms in Multiterm Nov 24, 2004

Many thanks ... unfortunately, I am still having a few problems. Once I have selected "Add", I click on "term" and an empty field appears (to the right). How can I enter the text I have copied from somewhere else into this field (right-clicking doesn't seem to work ). Have I missed something?

In addition to the Word>MultiTerm interface, you can also copy and paste from other applications. Highlight the term in the source app, press [Ctrl]+c to copy the text to the Windows clipboard, then place the cursor in an empty field in MultiTerm. Press [Ctrl]+v to paste.
