Trados Menu Not Appearing in Office 2003

The Trados menu does not appear in the Word 2003 menu bar (at the top of the screen), making it impossible to fix broken documents.

Trados 6.5.5.438 - (Build 438)

Word 2003 (11.6359.6408) SP1

I'm using Trados in Word, so the add-in is working fine, and the little menu thingy with all the arrows for opening/getting/closing/etc. segments appears with no problem.

It's just the Trados button, which is normally next to Help (Window - Help - Trados), is not there.

Thanks,
marc

Very feeble advice Feb 25, 2005

I had this problem a while ago. What worked for me might not work for you, but you might give it a shot.
I just went to Tools/Templates and ad-ins and copied the Trados.dot file from the Trados programme file once more. Now I have two of them there. When I need the Trados button, I activate the second dot file as well. I have no idea why it works like that, but that did the trick for me.

Good luck!

Conflict with other add-ins? Feb 26, 2005

Hi Marc,
I had a similar problem with Adobe Acrobat 6.0 under Word XP - the Acrobat menu would simply 'overlay' the Trados menu. The workaround was to temporarily deactivate Acrobat. (Discussions on the Adobe users' forum indicated that other applications suffered the same fate...)

Do you have any other additional applications which are active?

Although this article from the Trados KB doesn't match the issue 100%, some of the hints given might be useful.

Best, Ralf

I do. I upgraded my whole system (Office 2003, Acrobat 7.0) and the problem happened. It hadn't happened with Acrobat 6.0, maybe because I was using Japanese Office, but now I have US Office, and the Trados menu is gone.

How do you deactivate the Acrobat menu, though? I looked through both the Word and Acrobat settings, and couldn't find anything.

Thanks,
Marc

I couldn't figure out how to deactivate the Acrobat Comments menu, so what I did was to add the button for the "Reset Document" macro to the Trados toolbar.
