The only way to get the grey tag is to c&p out of the SL segment which is a complete pain. Has anyone had this happen? Is there a reason? Is there a way round it? Does it even matter (i.e. are the grey tags only a representation of the text the contain anyway?)?

FYI I'm using Trados 2007 Suite build 863

Have you checked your tag view setting under View / Tag Text? It is supposed to apply to both, source and target, but it would not hurt checking if it is set to None.

Thanks - but still no cigar :( May 11, 2011

Thanks for the suggestion, tried it but it only affects what is displayed in the grey boxes. If I insert placeable I still get the text alone without the grey box. I can only get the grey box if I c&p or copy source
