Autotext not working in SDL Trados Studio 2017 Starter
Thread poster: forgottheoldone
Apr 6

could any one possibly tell me if SDL Trados Studio 2017 Starter is Supposed to have autotext functioning as a feature, or if it is only available on an "upgraded" version?

Since having to repurchase the package after a hard drive failure (back your stuff up, people!), the usual alt+F7 key just puts the numbers 1 to 4 and the letters F H R A V D E along the icons in the top left and the tool ribbon tab headings. Under File - Options - Autotext, everything is greyed out EXCEPT this single target language option of "English United States.

Would anyone know if it's me doing something wrong here? Have I set US-EN as a default language somewhere so that autotext doesn't work with a GB-EN package? Or is there some input accessibility feature activated that overrides the usual key combination?

Would be massively grateful for any ideas.
