Hello to everyone. I use PlusTools' Tag and Untag functions to edit HTML, and now I have some particular HTML files that have extra tags which are not included in PlusTools' default tag list. So I add them to the list. But when I try to save the new list, no matter what I enter in the Save List As box, I get an error message "Bad file name or number". I know this is a Visual Basic error but I don't know what it means in this case.

I would edit out the VB code that does that but I can't access the PlusTools macros, which are password protected.

Does anyone know why I'm getting this error? Is there a way to edit the tag list outside of PlusTools' interface?

Thanks in advance,

Freelancer, EngSpa

Go straight to the Wordfast group @ http://groups.yahoo.com/group/wordfast/ and post your question there. There are lots of specialists that will be able to help.
Remember to mention which version of PTools, Windows and Word you're using.
There is a new version of Ptools (4/12/03- with some bugs fixed) that you could try (if you don't have it yet) before posting.
Good luck!!
