I am using Trados 2006 and today suddenly when I use "get current (or next or previous) placeable" the text/number that is inserted in the target text is blue, whilst all other font remains black. If I keep typing after the placeable font stays blue.

It is very tiresome having to go and manually change the colour of the font. I haven't changed any settings (I wouldn't even know where to begin).

Please help! Thank you.

Check the style May 30, 2007

Hi Sara,
You did not indicate the file format you're working on - I assume it's a Word file?

Have you checked the colour settings in the paragraph style?

Best regards,
