Using the Autotext feature in Trados Studio 2009 SP1

This is the first of a series of notes with the intention of reviewing the new and old features, as well as the performance of the new version of SDL-Trados, Trados Studio 2009 SP1.

Autotext is a very handy feature and it feeds to the Autosuggest prompt. You can add manually entries (not recommended), import autoTxt files, import them from Trados TMs (the new format), or tmx files.

Toggle field codes in Word

Word displays field codes (like this: {page\*mergeformat}) instead of interpreting them and displaying a proper hyperlink, page number, Table of Contents, etc.

Select Tools -> Options -> View tab and uncheck the Field Codes box.
Also, Alt+F9 toggles field codes.
