Dear colleagues

I wonder if any of you can help me with my problem. I am translating a document that has many "Feldfunktionen" (Don´t know whether they´re called "field functions" in the english version of MS Word or not. I mean the hidden text commands that start like {XE } and so on.)


I have one paragraph where the document has 10 such field functions. In Trados I can insert these by pressing Alt + the number of the field function I want to insert. As long as there are only 1 - 9 field functions in the source sentence there is no problem, but how do I insert the 10th field function?

I am very curious what you´ll suggest.

I always copy them manually Feb 11, 2006

Usually I copy the whole source and overwrigt, but one can also copy and past one such field at a time.
