For quick help, I've heard the yahoo group is very helpful. Maybe send an e-mail to support for good measure.

Same here Mar 5, 2010

Hi!

I'm having the same problem when trying to export document from MemoQ. Namely, there have been some warnings and errors that MemoQ wants me to resolve before exporting a Word document (2003 version). I tried to do that, namely, in the Resolve errors and warnings window I checked - Resolved, next to each sentence that contained a problem, but it wouldn't work. I tried many options, but failed to hit the right one, obviously.

I am using the 4.0 MemoQ free trial version.

Thank you for your help in advance.

How about actually resolving the errors instead of just ticking "resolved"...?

Interesting suggestion... Mar 5, 2010

The fact is that there is nothing to resolve, or at least I don't know how to do that. Namely, the source text had some segments with {} marks in between - but they just won't disappear when I try to edit the source text. It always goes back to the old ways.

(sigh)

You can't remove the format tags ({number}) from the source. They need to be present in the target cell (you can insert them by pressing F8). There's no exception to this rule. Fix the tags and the file will export fine.

Exactly. This is even more critical in the case of the Powerpoint filter, which seems to be very picky with tags. All tags must be there!

Are you using PPT 2007? Mar 19, 2010

If you are, please use the PPTX file format instead of PPT.
