Hello I'm trying to find a way to search (and replace) for a text string with embedded tags in TagEditor. E.g. I have a segment like "This is my text". Unfortunately I did not find a way until now to find such a text in TagEditor. In Word it's no problem. If I type in "This is my text" in the find dialog of TE is doesn't find that text. Of course I can open the TTX in Notepad or similar and do the S&R there, but that's far away from being comfortable. Copy & Paste from TE to Word and vice versa is also not really the way what I expect
Does anyone knows a trick how to do this? How do you do it when you have to find text in a TTX with tons of internal tags even within words?

Looking forward to your enlightening answers

TextPad Jul 21, 2004

Hi Stefan,
I use TextPad - a low-priced text editor offering much more search & replace options than Notepad.

HTH, Ralf

That was not my question ;-) Jul 21, 2004

Hi Ralf,

thanks much for your answer, nevertheless that was not my question. Actually I know TextPad and it's quite powerful. What I was looking for was a more convenient solution *within* TagEdtor. I don't really like to work with the source code of the TTX especially as it's difficult to read the code if you want to do a lot of S&R with "visual human confirmation".

Any other suggestions?

I know... ;-) Jul 21, 2004

...but I wasn't aware of any better solution myself.

I'll alert Trados Support to this query.

Best, Ralf

Hi Ralf,
Did TRADOS gave any reply to this?

Or does anyone else knows how to search and replace tags in TagEditor?
I need to do this very often. E.g. I need to search for " mm" and replace it with "(hs-tag)mm" (any number + hard space + unit) or search and replace things like "Windows XP" with "Windows(hs-tag)XP". I'm wondering if there is no possibility to do this in TagEditor ...?!?
