When use real-time preview, I find that it takes several seconds for Studio to focus on the next segment. However, switching off real-time preview doesn't solve this (as if it is still running in the background). I find that the only way to work around this is to close the file (with the preview off) and reopen. Does anyone know a better workaround?

Thanks,

Olly

Kill Word in task manager May 29

Hello Olly. I was just making similar comments in another thread – http://www.proz.com/forum/sdl_trados_support/310550-sdl_trados_studio_2017_and_real_time_preview.html – what a coincidence.

A workaround I found is to kill the unneeded instances of Word in the Task Manager.

P.

It crashes it too, sometimes Jun 8

I think SDL are well aware of this, that’s why the silence on their part. They know they have a feature that often even crashes the program (which is what prompted me to come back to this).

Trados crashing – plug-ins? Jul 15

Hmm, my Trados now started freezing quite often, even without using the Preview. When I open Task Manager, there is a Word process running using CPU, if I kill it, Trados process starts running using CPU, but both would run indefinitely, and Trados isn’t responsive.

I have a more constructive theory – could it be the MS Word Grammar Checker plugin causing this? Or are some other plugins known to cause instability/freezing?

Powepoint PPTX preview – does it ever work? Jul 15

And one more question re Live Preview: so far every time I tried using it for a Powerpoint, it has never worked on any file I was translating. Again, am I doing something wrong?
