Just heard about this new feature which you activate by ticking a box in Box, Automation but this feature does not appear in my version, although I updated it. Any idea why?
Thanks, Ollie

Hi. I can see this option in File/Options/Editor/Automation.
Look for 'Enable LookAhead'. Its the 9th box listed on the right-hand side.

If you don't see it, best to contact SDL.

Do you have SR1 installed? Aug 3

Hi Ollie,

It looks to me that you have Studio 2017 without SR1 installed, so if you don't see the LookAhead option, it is ok.

Hi Natalie,
Trados was updated, I downloaded the lastest update from my account and reinstall it just to stay on the safe side. I have version 14.0.5889.5. Could it be that it is the freelance version?

Not updated Aug 4

Hi Ollie,

In case you wish to use the LookAhead feature - no, it is not the right version: your software is not updated to SR1. The newest version is "SDL Trados Studio 2017 SR1 - 14.1.6284.6"

To update, click the "Check for updates" option in Studio ribbon.

Natalie, you were right!
I assumed I had updated Trados to the SR1 version using the update feature within Trados. It looks like the SR1 version needs to downloaded to do the update. I have done just that and the LookAhead feature is now present. Thank you, Natalie.
