Hello everyone,

I'm trying to use the Quick Add New Term function, but everytime I press the shortcut Ctrl+Shift+F2, Studio 2015 opens the Termbase Viewer window and it takes a lot of time to close (and you have to close it manually). Is there a way to refrain this window to open? It would be really handy.

Thank you,

Heloisa

I have had similar problems. What I do is select Auto Hide from the menu at the right of the Termbase Viewer window. Then, when I add a term it opens, adds the term and closes again.

However, note that if your mouse pointer is over the window when it opens, the window will stay open - that's what governs the Auto Hide function. So keep your pointer away.

With set up described above the window closes automatically in a second or so. Like you I would prefer that it did not open at all but I don't know if that is possible. Maybe somebody more knowledgeable can enlighten us.

The window is auto-hiding Jul 12, 2016

Hi Dan and Heloisa

You can't avoid having the window opening, but as it is set to auto-hide by default, it will - as Dan pointed out - retract as soon as you move your cursor out of it.

This is by purpose because it gives you the possibility to do a quick visual check on the result of the "Quick Add Term" process . If everything is OK, simply move your cursor out of the window and it will immediately close.

Thank you sirs!

Indeed if you set the window to Auto-Hide it works fastly. I really like the Terminology Window to be open all the time, but I can live without it!icon_smile.gif

Again, thank you very much, you helped me a lot!

Have a wonderful day!
