Dear All,

I hope this email finds you well.

While doing translation inside Studio 2009 and copying some texts contains sub- and/or superscripts like in chemical formulae it is pasted as raw text without those complex scripts. Is there any option/function to be enabled/disabled to solve this problem.

I have to copy and paste then reformat the text (sub- and super scripts) as needed.

Please help.

Best Regards,

Use QuickPlace instead of pasting Oct 27, 2010

Why do you use copy-paste? This should only be used exceptionally in Studio.
In order to transfer the subscript or superscript format from source to target, simply type your target text, then select the text that should be formatted (e.g. superscript) and hit CTRL-comma. The tags for superscript/subscript (or any other format) will automatically be inserted around the selected text. That's it. This is the recommended method to transfer formatting in Studio and is very comfortable and fast.

And by the way: I have not been able to reproduce your problem. In my test, the copy-paste also copied the tags. I guess your selection did not include all the text including the necessary tags.

Writing direction? Oct 27, 2010

I have not experienced this problem in English-Hungarian language pair either. Perhaps the problem is caused by the different writing direction?
