Why Term Recognition is sometimes almost empty?

I use SDL Trados Studio 2017 this year after more than 2 years of using St. 2014. I didn't have problems with the integrated Term Recognition earlier, but I've been having more and more problems lately. In fact, sometimes all terms appear from the Termbase (which I can always see on the left side), but more and more often, only a couple of words turn up in the Term Recognition window, and the rest doesn't. Then, when I click on something to be added which I know is already in, of course, Add New Term says it's already added, do I wish to go on? It's only then that I can see the term in question directly in the Termbase, but it still fails to be shown in the Term Recognition panel (top right corner). When I make a Termbase Search, the newly added words still fail to come up. I have no access to Settings in the Add termbases window, although I remember having set that to full access some time earlier. These last weeks, this problem slows down my work quite considerably.

What could be a reason, and especially, a solution to this? I'd appreciate any help. Thank you.
