I used to have a few filters in TagEditor - Tools/plugins. Filters which came as a standard with my Trados 6.5. Now the Tools/plugins window is empty, even after reinstalling Trados 6.5
You may want to try UNinstalling Trados and then reinstalling it.
Furthermore, a new ttx job I received causes the following window appear for each TU: "Filter definition not found: Trados Word Filter 126.96.36.199." and I must press Enter to dismiss the window after each TU.
These two issues may be unrelated. Is Trados Word Filter 188.8.131.52. something that only appears in Trados 7?
To edit Word files in TagEditor, you need at least Trados version 7.1. Ideally, you will want to use the exact same version (up to the build number) as the person who prepared the .ttx file.
Is there a way for me to get rid of these windows "Filter definition not found:" appearing upon opening of each TU?
