Hello all,

I'd be grateful if anyone can help with a rather strange Trados problem - I am translating a document that has some sections in extremely small text (size 5). In Trados these sentences are displayed as so small that I can't read them in the main Editor window. I can read the source in the Concordance search window, which is fine to translate from, but I can't read what I'm typing in the Editor window!

Does anyone know of a way to increase the size of the display within Trados?

I *can* get round it by editing the source document to increase the size of the text and then editing it back again when I've finished translating, but I would rather not have to!

Thanks in advance.

Jane

Change font settings in Editor Feb 10, 2010

Go to Tools - Options, chose Edtor, chose Font adaptation and make the changes as desired.
This has been published here numerous times since the very first release of Studio.

I am sorry if this has been addressed before; that's always so annoying.

Unfortunately I don't seem to have "Font adaptation" in the list of things I can change under Editor, or elsewhere. Any other ideas?

But otherwise you are sure you are using Studio? Feb 10, 2010

I do not know your language version - and am using the German one myself, but if you just would click what is similar to Tools in your language (it would be "Extras" in German), you will get "Options" in this menu.
Go there.
The first option on the list on the left is "Editor". Click the plus sign beside it and locate something similar to "Font adaptation" ("Schriftartenanpassung" in German).
Change the setting for min and max font size.
That's all.

Oh, dear, sorry - now I really feel thick! I had looked previously at the "Options" menu earlier while attempting to fix this and my "Keyboard shortcuts" menu was open (which has an "Editor" option too). Blush. A bit of a blonde moment, there, I'm afraid.

Thanks very much, Jerzy!

My 2 cents Feb 11, 2010

No reason to feel that way, changing the size of displayed font is IMHO a week point in Studio 2009, it is very unintuitive and completely different to other office applications and even to Tag Editor.

I like Studio 2009 but I cannot understand why it has not been possible to either add a small menu with zoom set in % or even better to allow users to enlarge text by using ctr and mouse wheel.

Best Regards
Stanislaw

Wait and see Feb 11, 2010

There will be a very good reason for using this way of adapting display in a very near futore.
So please wait, watch and see then

Another way of doing this Aug 22, 2012

Go to Tools > Options > Editor and change 'Formatting display style' to 'Show all tags but do not show formatting'

The text will now appear in a standard format within Studio but the formatting will still appear in the target text.
