Dear all,

I am attempting to review a html document I translated in TagEditor.

But when I click on the "preview' tab I only get a plain text instead of what I should see in HTML.

My Trados version is 8.2
Internetexplorer is

I do get a message from the Explorer that "in order to improve the security of my computer, the execution of Active-x-'besutingselementen' that migh give acces to my computer has been restrained. Click here for options" (sorry for the lousy translation, the original was in dutch)

I did allow 'blocked content' but I only get plain tekst without any layout element.

I did put the translated ttx in the same map as the original html were the html parameters are.

Would anybody know why I do not get a normal html layout when asking for a Preview in TagEditor?

Thanks for any idea

Did you enable TradosTag Viewer? Sep 5, 2010

Check that you do not have the TradosTag Viewer enabled.

Tools - Plug-ins - TagEditor Plug-ins.

Both plug-ins should be disabled if you want to do a preview in the native application.
