I am using TRADOS 6.5. I have long paragraphs that I would rather break into smaller segments. Does anybody know how can one insert a "breakpoint"?

I know that if I hit return, or insert a period it will automatically make a break, but I wanted to include an "invisible" mark, if I could.

Would a line break (Shift+Return) do the trick for you?

What about using tabs? Jun 4, 2006

they are understood per default as segment delimiters. You will have to have some character to indicate the break and tab is inocuous enough.

See File\Setup\Segmentation rules in RWB for more on this.
