Hello all

I'm translating a batch of PowerPoint files using TagEditor (TagEditor, Version 7.1). A problem arises when converting back the ttx files into PowerPoint: Font sizes change. Most of the time a 28 font size is reduced to 24, a 24 to 20, or 16 (but not always)... I'm using Windows XP proffesional, Office 2003.

Is there a way to avoid those undesired changes?

Kind regards

known bug Apr 10, 2008

It's a known bug, which also affects me on "SDL Trados 2006 Freelance", Word 2003, Windows XP. It also changes the colours of some of the text. I was thinking of upgrading: according to a review in the ITI Bulletin, the latest version has resolved this issue.
However, if this forum is anything to go by, the whole upgrading / installation process with Trados can often be problematic, so I am putting it off until I have finished my current projects.
Good luck!
