Dear All,

I have a problem when I deal with T-windows for ppt.

When I open any ppt document and begin to use trados, it shows a message that the presentation contains unavailable fonts.

I tried that with a lot of presentations that contains famous fonts (Arial, Times new roman,..) and still the problem persists.



Please advise me what to do



Thanks for your help

Which Trados version? Sep 18, 2004

Hi Sabry,
Which Trados version are you using?

Note that TagEditor 6.5 can handle Excel and PowerPoint files.

Best regards, Ralf

program stalls Sep 29, 2004

Hi Ralf, I had the same problem and solved it in T Window as described above, but I don't seem to be able to open these files in TagEditor as everytime I open it, the programm stalls and I have to close it because I get the message "Program is not responding". Any ideas what can cause this?
I have Trados 6.5.5, Windows XP, PowerPoint XP (2002)
thanks
Chantal

Does it really? Sep 29, 2004

Hi Chantal,
Do you get an error message, or does it simply take very long, during which time the program is not responding?

Opening PPT and XLS files in TagEditor can take several minutes, as all the formatting information in the source file needs to be converted to TTX.

HTH, Ralf

doesn't open Sep 29, 2004

Hi Ralf,
well I tried it again with a small file and waited for about 10 minutes. If I check my Windows Task Manager the program pops on and off from "not responding" to "running". It takes forever and nothing happens. I did get an error message once :
"80005 connection with server application error. The RPC server is unavailable".
I closed all my other programs, so nothing could interfere, but still no success.
Very strange,
Best regards,
Chantal

Registered the software? Sep 29, 2004

Hi again,
Noting that you upgraded to 6.5.5, did you register the software after upgrade/installation?
(Start - Programs - Trados 6.5 - Register Trados 6.5)

I registered Oct 1, 2004

Dear Ralf,
I registered the software, can't remember if I had done this already. I did at first get a message in the DOS window:
c:\windows\microsoft.net\framework\v1.0.3705\gacutil.exe is not recognized as an internal of external command
but I fixed this, so now that's done, and I was able to open a very small file of 130 Kb. When I tried opening a file of 800 kb, the program stopped again. I have some more files that are even larger (10 MB)so I suppose it's not use trying to work in TagEditor. I closed all my other programs, so nothing could interfere, but no luck.
Too bad, because this T-window application is working extremely slow to swith to the following translation unit.
Thanks a lot for your help and if you have any tips, they're more than welcome. I think I should send you some Belgian chocolates for all your efforts
Have a nice day,
Chantal

It works!! Oct 3, 2004

Dear Ralf
just to let you know everything works fine now. Apparently it took much longer than I expected to load the files. This is indeed a much better way to work with ppt and xls files.
Thanks a whole bunch for your kind help!
