Anchored objects disappearing in InDesign CS2?

Input: InDesign CS2 INX files
Tool: SDL Trados 2007 SP2 + all hotfixes

Some of the elements in InDesign file are not visible in the final INX file (when opened in InDesign). The funny thing is that I can see these segments in TTX file and I can see them in the INX file (when displaying INX as the text file). I have noted these elements are Anchored Objects in InDesign. Has anybody experienced similar Trados behavior?

Thanks in advance,
Wojtek

An idea... Jun 30, 2008

I don't know if this is the case, but some elements are moved at the start of the translated file when imported into InDesign and need to be moved to their original position.
Hope this helps.

I guess they would be found by InDesign Search function :( Jun 30, 2008

Thanks for the tip, I have tried to find these translated elements using regular InDesign Search feature, but with no luck

Yep... Jun 30, 2008

Yes, had the same problem:

http://www.proz.com/forum/sdl_trados_support/68702-picture_captions_not_read_from_inx_files.html

I have managed to isolate the faulty frame with the caption which did not import correctly and sent it to SDL Support. They promised to look into it, however, never heard from them (in spite of inquries).

Unfortunately, I have not found any solution and I had little time - I had to copy and paste all the objects (ouch!).

Mine is a little bit different :) Jun 30, 2008



Seems that mine is a little bit different I can see the text from INX file, the text can be translated, it can be found in translated INX files, but after opening the INX file in InDesign the boxes are gone.

DejaVuX? Jun 30, 2008

Oh, sorry...

Should have read more carefully...

But I remembered something else: long after I had delivered the translation I have asked a friend to import the faulty INX file into DejaVuX - it worked OK. Maybe it would be worth a try?
