I just started usiing Keyboard Maestro. Quite impressed.
My first task was to create a "CT Companion" for MsWord.
On a large screen, I display the Word source file on half of the screen, and CT on the other half.
Each time I open a segment in CT (with Go to next or previous segment), the macro copies the source text and highlights it in MsWord, so I can see the context while translating.
➡️ You must activate "Copy source segment to clipboard" in CT...
Here is the KBM workflow. The first command (Open next segment) must be adapted to your own keyboard shorcut in CT):
(You can make a similar workflow for Go to previous segment.)
Simple, but quite useful workflow if you don't use CT's source preview function...

I created something similar, but for Preview, the advantage being that Preview can show just about all file formats, and isn't limited to a single format, like Word.
Alain: Would you mind sharing your workflow here
I hope this still works, it's an April 2014 Automator applet (dee the discussion on the old forum on the subject).
And another solution:
Find content of SL in Word document

True, but CT's preview became more attractive since whenever you could "float" and resize resources in the tabbed pane. Whereas it was mostly useful for users with a MacBook, now you can use it the same way as you'd use a separate view on an iMac, or with several monitors. No such things in April 2014, though.
SL = Source Language
I have one for PDF too, that I use more often, since most of my jobs are created with FrameMaker, ID, Interleaf etc.
