Hi everyone,
I have a weird problem with a .doc file I'm trying to open with Trados. For some reason, Trados chooses a huge, blue font for my target boxes (see here: http://img13.imageshack.us/i/94438213.jpg/), and I can't figure out how to get around the problem. I can't work the way it is now because it's simply too big. Does anybody know a solution?

and select "Show all tags but do not show formatting".
This will egalize the whole text to the minimum font size, set where Emma pointed you to.

Same problem when saving .doc file Mar 23, 2011

Hi again!
Now the problem's gone away in the Trados viewer; however, when I try to save the target .doc file I still get the same huge blue italic font. Could you please help?

Red lines Mar 24, 2011

I've solved the problem by changing some of Word's style and formatting settings.
I have another issue now: when I save the target .doc file and open it with Word, some words (about two-three per paragraph) are underlined in red, even though the spelling is fine. Each red line disappears as I right-click on it, but it's quite a pain to go through all of them like this. Any solutions, please?
