Is there any way of turning off the bloody prompt which pops up every time I do anything with a Studio document such as analyse or export bilingual reviews?
Is it possible to just set it to "always reopen"?

I must have clicked on that "yes" button a few thousand times since I started using Studio 2009 while clicking the "no" button perhaps two or three times.

It's one of those annoying things where Studio just isn't ergonomically streamlined.

This annoys me also, as the answer in my case is always "yes". If you're going to put up a confirmation dialog for a harmless and undoable action of this kind (it's not as if "yes" is going to break anything...) then at least give us a mechanism for turning it off.

This should be configurable Mar 3, 2016

I generally click No.
I find this unsolicited opening dialog superfluous. I don't want anything to open or to ask me whether I want it to open.

The same story with adding a document Mar 3, 2016

A similar message appears when you add a source document to an existing project.
After you add and prepare your file(s), Trados asks if you want to switch to target.
Jesus... No, why on earth... I add, prepare, analyze, and pretranslate it just for fun, no need to go further

Would be glad to know how to skip these messagese.

Options > Editor... Mar 3, 2016

In the main options (not the project options) there is a setting in the "Editor" section with 3 radio buttons. I think if you select "Do not automatically...." it should stop these prompts. The section is called "Startup" so not sure if it applies to all cases or just when starting up Studio....but in some way I've managed to disable these (to the best of my knowledge)...so perhaps this is the correct setting

That's just for starting up Studio.
