I have a problem when opening a ttx. file to do a proofreading in the tag editor. The original text is in light blue, and the edited text in yellow. The thing is that the translation instead of appearing in yellow, it appears in blue a couple of sentences below. The yellow space for the translation has nothing in it, and therefore I am unable to edit the translated text. How can I edit the translated text?

Could it be that the font is white? Sep 9, 2011

TagEditor won't let you save an empty translation unit, so most likely the text is there, just somehow not visible to you. It has happened to me a couple of times that the font was white and therefore not easily visible.
