Hmm, are you using Mac or Windows?

What happens if you right-click on Tree View elements? This is the 
main are for adding elements. (If the desired options are not 
present when you right-click in the Tree View - this would depend on 
your project and/or goals - then there may be some configuration

With tlTerm (with your data) open, make sure "Tools / Microsoft Word 
integration" is enabled. Then when you are working in Word, and a 
term in your database is matched against the word at the cursor, it 
should display in a popup window.

Hmm, this sounds like you are using a Mac? On Mac (due to the way 
Mac .app folders work), the Samples are in the DMG that you download 
from our site as a separate folder; you can open the samples from 
the DMG download, or copy them using Finder to your Documents

We do offer training and paid support if you need assistance.
