Following instructions in Workbench manual, I have been trying to create a new tm and define translation memory fields. I click text field in the Text Fields list, then change the name in the Field box from Text field to Doc Name. But when I click Add text in buttons goes pale and I cannot click OK. If I click in the attribute field list, nothing happens. Can anyone help? (This is the first time I've attempted to use this feature).

Actually, all you do is... Mar 27, 2006

... position the cursor anywhere on the list in the "Text fields:" box, click on Add and write the name of your new field in the box marked "Field:".

As you write the name of the new field in the box, it will also appear at the bottom of the list of text fields.

When you're happy with the new name, click on OK.

It's easy, if not exactly intuitive ; - )

Best,

Giles

Thanks, Giles. It seems to work.

But why oh why is everything in this program so unobvious?
