When opening a segment which contains a continuous sequence of tags, those tags are often merged into a single tag in the target. Also, sometimes their shape changes, too. This is probably ok as fas as the target file is concerned, but such segments always trigger tag checking warnings. Does anyone know how to avoid that (apart from switching the warnings off)?

I'm getting this problem in SDLT 2007 Suite Freelance, but it could occur in other versions as well.

Uncheck "group adjacent tags" Aug 19, 2009

Go to Options > Editor > and uncheck "group adjacent tags".
That gives you more freedom to select a single tag.

Oh, sorry, what I'm saying applies to Studio 2009 and I've just seen that you're using Trados Suite. Well, I'll leave my comment in case it helps anyone else, and maybe you can find this option in Suite as well.
