I checked through the entries, but I seem to be the only one who has this problem.
When I try to highlight words in the target file (in order to copy them somewhere else or to check them), the "copy option" is grayed out. the segment is activated, but for me, niente on the options cut/copy/paste!
Who knows the magic? Yes, ctrl c/t/v works, but I do NOT want that ...
Many thanks

Maybe restart? Jul 19

Hi Renata, have you tried to restart:

1. Studio?
2. Windows?

no webroot protection in my system Aug 6

BUT
when I run Studio as the administrator, things work.
I do not find that very satisfactory, as I prefer to ELECT such protection myself. I'll be watching the forum some more, until someone (from SDL?) reveals the magic key to an everyday function.

Ask SDL community Aug 8

You'd better ask for a clue at SDL Community portal
https://community.sdl.com/product-groups/translationproductivity/f/studio
Press the '+New' soft button, type your question and press 'Ask'. That would be more efficient than waiting for them here on proz.com
