Re-Posting from the Xbench Forum

I'm re-posting this directly as it appeared on the Xbench forum, as it may be of interest for all those who use Studio and the Xbench Studio plug-in:
With SDL Trados Studio 2017 Cumulative Update 9 (CU9) the Xbench Edit Segment (Ctrl+E) feature may stop working (it does not open the Studio document).
To be able to use the Edit Segment functionality after you updated your Trados Studio 2017 to CU9, just download and install the latest Xbench plugin for Studio (build 13)

  1. Thanks for that, I was actually thinking of upgrading to Studio 2017 but this is not the first problem that it's being reported...

    1. To be fair, this is probably not a Studio problem: it's some change in Studio that required a change in Xbench (a change that has already been made: you just need to download the most up to date version of the Xbench Studio plugin).
      Personally, I like Studio 2017: it's better than the previous versions.

  2. I nearly upgraded about two weeks ago but I then I started reading about problems and bugs... Apart from that, I am also thinking that there might be a new edition coming soon, considering the pace they have been releasing them for the past few years. Would you recommend upgrading?

    1. Generally, yes: I find 2017 superior to the previous versions. You might want to ask them when they expect to release a new version, if that is a concern, and also what happens if you upgrade now and a new version is released within a few months (I believe there should be a window of time during which you can upgrade to the new version for free... but better ask SDL).

  3. Thank you for you advise, I will ask them. I read in the release notes that they fixed the incredibly annoying error "object reference not set to an instance of an object". Only for that reason, it's got to be worth a try!

    1. Yes, I haven't seen that particular error message for a while now.
