The problem is, that the source segment contains a tagged part at the end. So when copy the source to the target I get a tag at the end of the source tag, but my translation should continue after the tag. I cannot put the cursor after the tag and don't know how to remove the tag and put it somewhere else.
The tag is about simple formatting, in my translation the bold text should appear inside the text, not at the end.
Regards
Heinrich

Use Format Paint Apr 30, 2010

Hi,

Try entering the text for your segment then use Format Paint (F9). Highlight the part affected by the tags in the source segment by clicking on it and paste it in the target. Hitting Enter usually works I think.

I hope it helps.

Best regards,

Tamás

Use Format Paint Apr 30, 2010

When I work with SDLX I always display tags as colours (View - Tags - Colours) and then use the Format Paint menu to select the text affected by a certain tag, for example bold text.

If you are unfamiliar with this function I can email you a very handy beginners guide to SDLX, just contact me directly with your email adress.

Hope this helps,
Asa

Thanks! Apr 30, 2010

I don't like format paint, but in this case it works.
