Hi there,

I am currently using Trados 6.5 and considering an upgrade, mainly because I sometimes get complicated Word files.
However having read the user guide to the new version I am still a bit confused.
a) What happens if graphics created in other applications have been introduced into the Word document and I use TagEditor. Will it recognize them?

b) What about the spell check. At the moment in Trados 6.5 the spell check in TagEditor is so slow that I see no point in using it for large word files. What is your experience with this?

No, you can maybe edit them after recoversion to Word.

Spell Check is faster than in Traods 6.5, but it could be faster...

With regards

You won't see the object in TagEditor and it will be reinserted into the cleaned document without change. I believe it should work the same way in Trados 6.5.

My experience is not so good. See the following thread:
