My keaboard shortcuts are not functioning. I'd appreciate if someone could tell me how I can reactivate them.

I use Windows XP and Office XP, SDLX Trados Free-lance 2007

Thanks in advance

short-cut keys Feb 17, 2008

The short-cut keys don't work if your key for numeric lock is ON. You need to turn the Numeric Lock OMy answer is from "Translator's Workbench Training for Translators".

To Jerzy,

I ran into the problem with whort-cut keys as was the questin here. and I found the answer to my dilemma in paragraph 13 of the training manual.

Short and simple.

Why this? Feb 17, 2008


The short-cut keys don't work if your key for numeric lock is ON. You need to turn the Numeric Lock OFF to use them.

I have never encountered this behaviour on any PC I ever tried to use. You can keep the num-pad on and still use the plus and asterisk key from there.
Maybe you are mixing up something with laptop and PC?

As for not working shortcuts, just try to recreate the in Word startup folder from SDL Trados installation folder.
Other possibility is, that your got corrupted.
