I'm getting used to Studio (2014) after using memoQ for several years. I find it to be an improvement in most areas, but I am sorely missing a feature I did not even realise I was using that much, namely Longest Substring Concordance (LSC) with automatic typing. Mostly I found this useful for automatically inserting UI text into software manuals; once I had translated the name of a function in a separate segment, it would be suggested while translating a segment detailing the usage of said function.

Now, I gather I can emulate this functionality in Trados Studio by creating an AutoSuggest dictionary of the TM, but I understand this would not work when I am translating the UI text at the same time as the text referencing the UI text, since the dictionary would be out-dated after a few segments. Is there any way to use an active TM as an AutoSuggest dictionary? I have dug through the options and OpenExchange, but have yet to find anything similar. Thanks for any help or suggestions!
