I am translating a file in memoQ 6.2 over a client's server, so the file is already imported.
A lot of segments show tags (I think that's what you call them -- I am not sure what qualifies as a tag and what not).


(since HTML is not displaying these tags properly, I have to describe them)

The tags (by that I mean the text inside the brackets and the brackets themselves) appear as editable words/characters.

What I want:
- I want these tags to appear as red blobs, for example, that are not editable.
- I want the warning bolt to show up when the tags in the translated segment don't match the ones in the source segment.

How can I go about this?
