Non-breaking space errors. I don't understand why I am getting them or what they mean.

Taking my first steps with Memo Q. (So far, I'm really liking it and can't wait until there's an offer on here to buy it!)

I am receiving the warnings: 03194 and 03197

"The space before the rpr tag should be a non-breaking space" and also,

"A non-breaking space is missing after the rpr tag".

Any assistance, greatly appreciated.

Many thanks.

Just overzealous QA Aug 9

MemoQ can be a bit overzealous in its QA. You can just ignore such warnings if they make no linguistic sense.

Different font, however Aug 10

Thank you for your replies.

The font of the last part of the sentence following the 01394 error does appear different in the view pane however...

Yes, that's one of the many things tags do. You can expand the tags to see what's in them (Edit tab):

This has nothing to do with the blanks, though.

In French, for example, certain signs, such as question marks and colons, must be preceded by a blank. MemoQ doesn't understand that such a blank doesn't necessarily have to appear in the target language.

That's why you need to use your own common sense and linguistic knowledge and should simply ignore such warnings when they are linguistically irrelevant.

Expanded tags. Still unclear why affecting the font. Aug 12

Thank you, Thomas.

I took a photo on my phone but it doesn't seem that you can post Jpegs onto the replies here.

With something like this, could I save the finished project as Word and then manually apply a format correction afterwards? (This is providing the client does not want it in the Memo Q file format.)

Thank you.

Jpegs are accepted. The following image is a .jpg:

You would need to compare with the formatting of the source document. I've never seen MemoQ change the font all by itself.

Can't see how to add a photo on here Aug 12

But I found my way to MemoQ Support and have submitted a ticket.

It's a bit awkward Aug 12

Here:

If you're using Windows, it's much simpler to use Windows' Snipping Tool (under Windows Accessories) or [Winkey]+PrtSc to take partial or full screenshots, respectively, and then upload them directly to the forum (using the function above).

Different to what I'm seeing Aug 12

I'm not seeing the option for dragging files or choosing files. Also, as it was a screen shot, when I drag that to the reply area, it takes up the whole screen and then I have no way of posting the reply as all I can see is the screen shot. I'd do a screen shot of what I'm seeing on my "Post reply" area but then I'd have the same problem posting that! Anyway. That's all veering away from my initial topic.

Here Aug 12

I see it in Chrome on Windows as well as Android. I guess you are not looking the right place.

I do not see that option either, so it must be for members only.

Sharing on social media options but not Choose file Aug 12

Nope. I have a Share option with LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook and then the Post Reply buttons. You are seeing something different to me.

Weird Aug 12

I've no idea why it's not displayed in your end. You'd need to ask Proz support.
