Hi all
Does anyone know how to set the position on the source and target segments on the screen?
For me, even if I start translating at the top of the screen (the logical place), within a few segments, the source is just visible at the bottom of the screen but the target box is not, which means I have to keep scrolling.
Maybe this is the way it is, but I wanted to check in case there is a way of fixing this.
Ideally, after filling in the target box for a segment, Wf would then automatically position the next source and target boxes cleanly at the top of the screen...
Thanks for any tips!

The limitation is inherent to the software. You can only alleviate it, for instance by using draft view instead of print layout view. You can also buy a display with more vertical pixels

Thanks Dominique. But I already always use Draft view. And I have a huge second screen so no shortage of pixels here
