Hi! some days ago I was working in TagEditor, left my computer for some time and when I returned I could not visualize the Workbench window any more. It was still running (I could still open segments and work on them) but I couldn't see the Workbench window in my computer screen. Any ideas what could be the problem?

Thanks a lot

Found this. I tried it and it worked!!! So here it goes:

You can fix this by changing the value of 2 keys in the Windows Registry.

1. Close Translator's Workbench.

2. From the Start menu, choose Run. The Run dialog box is displayed.

3. Type regedit in the Run box.

4. Click OK. The Windows Registry Editor is displayed.

5. In the left side pane, navigate through the folders to the following path: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\TRADOS\TW4Win\Last Session.

6. On the right side pane, right-click on X and select Modify from the short menu. The Edit DWORD Value dialog is displayed.

7. Under Base, select the Decimal option.

8. Under Value Data, enter 0.

9. Click OK.

10. Repeat step 6 through 10 for the key Y.

11. Close the Registry Editor.

12. Launch Translator's Workbench.

13. Translator's Workbench's window should open on the top left side of the screen and you can resize it as you wish.
