Hello,

I have just joined and I hope I am posting this in the proper place. I have been using TagEditor 7.5.0.756 - (Build 756) in translating PowerPoint presentations from English to Arabic. After saving the target file, I still have to go back and reformat the paragraph orientaion from LTR to RTL.

This is a time consuming process. I have tried to look in the preferences and settings but I have not been able to find a workaround.

Does anyone know how this can be fixed?

Many thanks in advance.


Hikmat

Have you tried posting this in the "Arabic" forum? Jul 17, 2006

The colleagues there probably know how to solve your problem, if possible. Unfortunately, I can't help further.

Still working on it Jul 18, 2006

Thanks for the suggestion. I did post it on the Arabic forum. Pending input, I will be working on a way to resolve the issue. If I reach a solution, I will post it here or write it in the form of an article.

And thanks for the friendly welcome. This is indeed a fascinating place. So much to explore. I hope I can make some contributions to the community of translators.

Unable to customize tags in TagEditor for Powepoint files Jul 19, 2006

Digging through the help files, I navigated to a section which says that if you have opened a ppt file in tageditor, the option to customize tags is disabled. You can only customize tags for non *.ppt files.

I feel that if I find a workaround where I can edit the customization of the tags, I can probably resolve the issue.
