Hello everyone

I'm using Trados 2011. A client sent me a package that has a TM in it. I want to work on the file for a while without the TM being consulted. Is there a simple way to disable the TM for a while?

By "disable the TM" I mean that matches from the TM don't get inserted into the text. I don't mind if the program still shows matches in the match pane, though (but I won't be looking at them).
