Hello to all,

this topic may have been discussed here but I couldn't find a clue.

My source file is in Word format and I have imported it into memoQ (2015). When I finish the translation, I will send back the word file to my client. There are some words which I want to highlight with yellow color (the way we do in Word) but this should NOT be in form of a comment. I need the yellow highlights to be present in the final word file. I prefer to perform this task in memoQ as it is a rather long file.

I guess that I have to add some kind of tag (I used to add tags for highlighting in Studio 2011). But I cannot find which tag and how to insert it. Is there a solution in memoQ? Or is it an unfortunate limitation?

Thanks in advance,

KB article in inserting tags Oct 1, 2016

Hi! See this link: http://kb.memoq.com/article/AA-00470/0/Adding-a-new-inline-tag.html
You may need to add a standard tag like bold or bold condensed, and then search/replace in the exported file. You might also try an experiment by adding a yellow highlight in a word document, and see what the tag looks like when you import the file.
In either case I think this would solve your problem.
Good luck,
