Hi,

I now you can copy the source paragraph or active sentence to the editor, but usually prefer to just start typing my translation. However, some words in my source text have a link and it seems the only way I can make sure the link is also there in the target is by using one of said copy-buttons. Very inconvenient because I have to erase the rest of the sentence. Does anybody know if it is possible to copy just the one word. If I use the keyboard functions Crtl C/V, the word is copied, but not the link (tag).

Thanks, Barbra

copy object to target editor Nov 7, 2008

If you want to copy a hyperlink, which is displayed as an object, you can select the object, right click on it and select the command "copy object".

thanks Nov 7, 2008

Hi Selcuk

tjok merci!

although it is still a bit of a hassle, because I have to perform the action "copy object" twice, for the start and end of the tag.
