I tried "fix document" and the segment didn't close and I can't go on with my translation.


What happens if you copy and paste the paragraph from the original file?

Best regards,
Ralf

Try to insert a return at the end of the following sentence Feb 10, 2006

Hi Ivana,

Sometimes it works if you insert a return (ie: press Enter) at the end of the following sentence.

HTH,
Jerónimo

Nothing happens, Ralph; it stays the same.

The "Return" button also didn't work.

I'm nearly at the beginning of my text (page 12 of 28 of the 1st document of 5 like this). I think I'm going to start it all over again.

Turn viewing hidden text on Feb 10, 2006

Options/View/hidden text

Then you should be able to see what is wrong.

Or just send me a document in question and write where the problem is.

I've just closed the document without saving and when I re-opened it I had missed a little text but the problem was gone. I hope it won't happen again.

Many thanks,
Ivana
