Hello!

I've been using Wordfast Pro for over a year and never came across this problem before.

All of a sudden, my default view was gone. I could not view the outline window on the right nor the TM lookup/Txml context/notes menu on the bottom.

By going to 'window' 'show view' 'outline' I can get that back, but the same doesn't apply to 'tm lookup' all I get is a separate window open. I've tried to restore default options but that doesn't seem to work either.

I'm used to working with the default view and am finding this very inconvenient. There must be an easy solution, but I can't seem to find it.

How do I get the tm lookup/txml context/notes back as shown below:

Hit the restore icon Jun 23, 2011

Hi Paula

You’ve probably hit the button to minimize these screens. They’ve shrunk to the lower right side of your screen as little icons. Hit the restore icon on the left of those screen icons and your good to go.

Hi Paula,

Go to Window > Show View and select whichever panes are not appearing (Notes, TXML Context, TM Lookup and Outline.).

Hope this helps,

Kristyna

Thanks for your help! Jun 23, 2011

Kristyna - I have tried doing that. It only worked for 'Outline'. Everything else opens as a separate window instead.

Erwin - There were no little icons, but by opening the separate windows I've found that the 'Detached' option had been marked. Problem solved! Thank you very much.

Hi Paula,

Can you post a screenshot of what you are currently looking at that you don't want?

First save your work. Then try to click on Window, and then New Window, it will show you the default view.
