Hello,

I'm using Trados SDL Studio 2009 and for some reason all the spaces show as little points, this is really getting on my nerve ! Any idea on how to shut down this option ?

Thanks in advance.

Best regards,

Mohamed

Go to Tools - Options - Editor... then under "Side by side editor" you will find "Show whitespace characters". That's the one you want.

Disable Show/Hide on Trados toolbar Jun 21, 2010

Hi,

I think you need to click on the Show/Hide button on the Trados toolbar. It is represented by the paragraph symbol. By clicking on this button, you will disable Show and switch to the Hide option.

shortcut Jun 21, 2010

I'm glad you've solved your problem, but you may like to know the shortcut for this is Ctrl+shift+8. This toggles whitespace chars on and off in Trados and Word so it's a very useful shortcut to have under your fingertips.

On an aside, you may find it annoying to see the dots if you are not used to them, but they are pretty useful in both applications (especially in Trados) to see extra spaces left around words and tags. So try getting used to them!
