Hi everybody,
when using the function "translate until next fuzzy" in word, the view always changes from "side" to "normal" (or is it standard? -sorry, I am using German interface). How can I make Trados not change the view? I always work in the side layout and would prefer Trados to do so as well. Is it possible?
Thanks for any hints,
Inga

Repagination can take forever with a large document and since translation to fuzzy involves opening and closing segments, I suppose Trados is just trying to save you some time by reverting to Normal view
