I'm editing an SDLXLIFF file in Trados 2015 file and I'm using tracked changes, but often I also want to leave a comment. However, many times, the "Add comment" option is greyed out on the context menu (and on the ribbon as well). Sometimes it eventually comes up after I right-clicked in several locations, while selecting text or while not selecting text, but there doesn't seem to be any pattern to its behaviour. Sometimes the option to leave a comment is there, sometimes it is there after you've clicked in a couple of places first, and sometimes it is simply not there.
So, how can I force the "Add comment" option to be available?
I see this too, Samuel. I am not sure there is a way to force a comment. If I can't place the cursor anywhere in the segment where the note option becomes active, I found that I need to add the comment before I make any corrections. There seems to be some conflict between the two. Sometimes my kb shortcut for adding a note doesn't work either. It might have to do with cursor focus, I am not sure.
