Hello,

My TagEditor 8.2.0.835 (build 835) is having trouble exporting .ttx back to .ppt (I use PowerPoint version 2002 SP3). My target language is Portuguese, which has accented characters and cedilla. All occurences of accented characters or cedilla get a different formatting than the rest of the word. For example: the word in EN "deposit" is formatted with boldface Arial size 20. After translating the segment and exporting back to .ppt, I get the word "depósito" correctly formatted, with exception of "ó", which I get in boldface Times New Roman size 20.

In the .ttx file itself there are no "intruder" tags around these characters, so that I assume the error occurs during exporting.

If PowerPoint's search and replace function were as smart as MS-Word's, I could just replace the occurences of Times New Roman - unfortunately it is not that smart

I would appreciate if someone could help me on that!

Kind regards,
Marcos

It's some sort of bug in PowerPoint Jul 30, 2008

Pre-2007 versions of PowerPoint got some sort of a bug related to the font used to display the accented characters. Sorry, no workaround so far
