Dear all,

Having opened in Studio a DOC file sent by a client, I received the following:

Studio%20tags.jpg

How can I avoid this?

Thanks a lot,
Natalia

Aaaaargh.
I missed one thing.
You must have a yahoo account.
I have one I never check, I use it only in order to login and download files from the groups I subscribe.

Character Spacing in Word Jun 9, 2010

I had the same issue some weeks back for a Word document (is it Word yours?), I posted a topic too and the suggestion then was:

- Highlight the whole document
- Open Font options window
- Goto the Character Spacing tab
- Set Scale to 100% and Spacing to Normal

That resolved my issue. Hope that it works for you tooicon_smile.gif

It's only one of CodeZapper features.
Some files may be more tricky.

Many thanks, Grzegorz! Jun 9, 2010

Zapping worked excellent.

Kjersti, correcting font was my first thought, and I even tried to do this. But the formatting is more complicated and, moreover, I have a dozen of files, so correcting them manually would be a waste of time.

Tortoise Tagger Jun 10, 2010

Hi Natalie,

You might be interested in trying out the freeware Tortoise tagger

http://www.nemadeka.com/tagger.htm

which is a set of MS Word templates that make your life easier when translating tagged files. I myself discovered this tool very recently, so I'm not an expert by any means, but for the problems you mention in this thread, I guess you could find useful the following Tortoise Tagger functions:

Misbehaving Doc Cleaner
TTX Target Remover
TTX to MS Word Converter


Kind regards,

Ana
