Search & Replace Box

The Search & Replace-Box disappears each time in the background, after clicking in the Editor Window. This is very annoying as the S&R-box must be reactivated again and again while working in the Editor window. What do I have to set to make the box stay in the foreground? Like it is in DejaVu!


  • I'm afraid there's no setting for that out of the box, but if you use AutoHotkey, you can set your own shortcut to make it "always on top".

    Here's the code:

    ;Select the desired program or window and press Ctrl+Space
    Winset, Alwaysontop, , A

    One question
    Why do you have to make another hotkey ? SDL Trados Studio already has (everybody has) "Ctrl F/H" ?
    I suggest you simply override it.
    You do not have to make another hotkey without any good reason.


  • I use a pop menu to keep any window on top, not just the Find & Replace dialog box.

    But if I needed to keep on top only that dialog box, I’d do it as you said: overriding the CTRL+F and CTRL+H hotkeys.

    #IfWinActive ahk_exe SDLTradosStudio.exe
    Winset, AlwaysOnTop, , A
