I am having problems with TagEditor for ASP files. The problem is NOT with TagEDitor as such, simply the fact that I can't make text adaptations; for example:

1. The ST is inconsistent with phone numbers: sometimes they are written with dots (987.564.656), sometimes without (987564656)

TE won't let me change these, so HOW?

2. The ST is inconsistent with the use of bold and italics. Thus, Article X of Law Y is sometimes in bold, sometimes in italics.

I know how to ADD but HOW do I remove?

3. I would like to exclude sentences! Not so radical when you see this example:

"What do I have to do in Catalonia?
Obtain the NIE".

The entire text is about getting the special ID for forigners, so it's a bit excessive to be spelling it out again. The Q is OK, becuase it's the heading for a section that explians precisely how to get the NIE.

Any help apprecaited:-)

Turn protection off Nov 8, 2005

To be able to change the source text and tags in segments, you need to turn the document and tag protection off. In TagEditor, go to: Tools - Options - Protection and uncheck "Protect tags" and "Protect document". Don't forget to turn it back on after making the changes. I recommend reading Help for more information (just press the Help button on the Protection tab).

internal and external tags Nov 8, 2005

I'm afraid I don't know enough to even distinguish between internal and external tags, so it's pretty meaningless to me.

What's more, I cannot find any information on REMOVING tags, e.g. so I can't change italics to bold.

I am not sure what you are refering to.

Simply delete them as if they were a character, but disable tag protection first.
