Dear colleagues,

I have a stupid problem. Normally I work with my laptop and a second sceen. When travelling I leave the second screen at home.

Now just working on one screen (laptop) the concordance window seems the be somewhere on the (unvisible) second screen and I can't view or access it to move it to my unique laptop screen.

It seems that Trados memorizes somewhere the last position of the concordance window. Is there a way to reset this, anyone knows?

Hope it was not too confusing

You may need to edit some values in the Windows registry Apr 22, 2005

Dear Noe,
I had a similar problem with my dual monitor system.

The reason for it is that most applications remember where they had been placed, their window coordinates, and the values are stored in the system registry.

If you are familiar with editing the Windows registry, I will give you the current location in my registry for my Trados software.
The path is the following: hkey_current_user > Software > Trados
Within this 'branch', browse the many options and try to find the settings or coordinates for the missing window.
Try the branch TW4Win > Last Session or TW4Win > Environment
I could not find anything more specific for the Concordance window yet.


PS: I have found an article in the Trados KB that explains what I've said about the WorkBench window. This is what I had in my second monitor. I could not find anything similar, or more details about the Concordance window. You may need to email Trados for a solution.

See Trados detailed instructions here:
