In Word this is no problem, but how can I remove tags in TE using the Replace-function? There are dh-tags all over the source-text in a ttx-file.
Regards
Heinrich

Yes, I know... Oct 8, 2008

We have that every now and then. We normally delete them in the Word document and create a new TagEditor file. But I still haven't been able to spend some time looking for other solutions. I am wondering whether opening the TTX file in Word as an Unicode text file would allow you to look for the DH tags and delete them?

You can edit .ttx files in any Unicode editor Oct 8, 2008

TTX files are Unicode files (UTF-16LE) and can be openend with any Unicode text editor.
I usually use the free version of EmEditor, which you can download from:
http://www.download.com/EmEditor-Free/3000-2352_4-10493299.html

Simply open the .ttx file in EmEditor and search for:

<ut DisplayText="dh"><:dh></ut>

and replace it with nothing.

Two ways Oct 8, 2008

1. Open the TTX as a text file in any text editor and edit.
2. Convert the TTX to RTF with TTXpress (google it), edit in Word, then convert back.

The second option is safer and more convenient.
