Hello everyone,

I recently installed Trados 5.5 with word 2003 and I have plenty of problems.

1. I do not see the Trados flagman or the toolbar and still can't find a way to make it visible. I read some other messages in the forum, i tried to proceed this way but nothing works.

2. Word 2003 started to "behave" strangely. I can no more place footnotes, hyperlinks or page numbers etc etc.

I already tried installing Trados again I restarted lots of times.

Has anyone experienced similar problems? Can someone help me?

Thanks in advance
