Hi all

Despite being able to translate legacy TTXs in Studio perfectly, I haven't found where do I set the "ini" file the client sends for translating in Tag Editor. Thus, Studio always tells me that WYSIWYG is not possible because the lack of the corresponding segmentaion "ini" file.

Does anyone know about that?

No "ini" files in SDL Studio Nov 11, 2009

They have been replaced by "sdlfiletype" files.
This is nearly the same - to get an ini file usable in Studio, you need to upgrade it.
Go to Tools - Options - File types, chose New and create a new setting file using the ini (import it to the new one). I think the creation process is very logical and quite easy.
As for the TTX file - this will however not help, as TTX files do have an own sdlfiletype file, which covers the TTX compatibility. So you do not need any ini for woking with legacy ttx files.

Best regards
