Can I use 4 termbases effectively at the same time for a project inside the editor window for automatic term hits in Studio 2014?

I have a large project, and it would speed up the translation quite a lot if I could use my 4 termbases directly inside Studio 2014 editor window. So that I get term hits automatically for each segment, either from the TM or from any of the 4 termbases I have activated for the project.

If I can have 4 active termbases at the same time, how does it work for example if there are term hits in several different termbases at the same time? Which term gets prioritized in that case, also in relation to the TM?

Can I easily switch between the termbases to view the different termhits, so I quickly can choose the right one?

You can use as many termbases as you like... Oct 2, 2014

... for look up. The searching and presentation of results is based on these settings:

However, you can only add terms to the default termbases. So how effectively you can work with multiple termbases depends on what you are doing. Trying to add terms to different termbases as you work would not be very effective, but just looking them up and using them interactively as you translate would be fine.
