Hello all you trados users. I had a very strange problem with a word
document last week. The original text still had the markup comments
on it (ie. delete... etc.). I switched off "track changes" as
instructed but had trouble opening certain segments. I was able to
open the segments but then I couldn't open them again for editing.
Tried all sorts of things like copying the document into a new word
document, accepting all the changes etc. but I still couldn't edit the
document properly. As it was only a short document I then just gave
up on using trados. Has anyone come across this problem before.

I have been using trados for about four years now but do not regard
myself as an expert. Using Trados 7.

Thanks and regards
Patricia Will

Sledgehammer approach Oct 27, 2008

One solution, if all else fails, is to copy the text to WordPad and back into a new Word doc.
Or the real sledgehammer approach -- copy to Notepad and back. You will lose formatting, but that is easy to restore.

Markups Oct 27, 2008

Did you try by de/activating the Markups option in Word? It is under the View options of the Main Tool bar.

Good Luck!
