It's a teething pains problem I assume: context
FL 6.5.5, QXD 6.0, the sample.QXD and the TRADOS file formats reference guide 5 - Quark Express files.

I exported the sample, I translated it in the Tag Editor, cleaned it, and ran into the wall:
the cleaned file sample.qsc is not accepted by the QXP: an unexpected (or at least unmentioned) "save as" dialogue for a qxp project comes up and after accepting defaults the "import resuls" listbox with

importing sample.qxd..
import cancelled.

I checked the tags and rechecked them again but there's not much one could do wrong in a sample file. Unfortunately there's no hint file to see if the cause is in the file or in the TRADOS environment (could it be the difference between FL and the "professional" or whatever it is called?)

Save as target text Apr 24, 2005

Hello

make sure, that you save the ttx file as target text
Make sure, that the qxd file isn't write protected.

Try to import the source file.

Hope it helps

Hans

no change - still the same behaviour Apr 24, 2005

Hallo Hans, danke!

make sure, that you save the ttx file as target text

as opposed to bi/multilingual? yes

Make sure, that the qxd file isn't write protected.

Yes

No difference. what about the following: when loading the target QXD, QXP hints, it will do (a minor) repair on the project file. Assuming, it could cause some misalignment or whatever, I tried to save the new situation and start from scratch, but (duh) Save and Save As are greyed (!)

btw, I have no experience with QXP, everything looks strange and paranoia is mot du jour (g).

If some good soul would know about a proven set of source and target QSDs, QSCs, TTX - whatever it takes - I would appreciate.

Regards

vito
