I'm translating a long document in TagEditor using a translation memory that is very complete. I'm using SDL Trados 2007. The problem is that when it inserts the matching text, it's often in bold whereas the source text and the previously translated text is (or appears to be) in normal font. I end up retyping the translation to get the right font, but isn't there a better way?

I looked on these forums and saw "format painting" but I don't see any option for that in TagEditor (if that's what it's for). It will save me tons of time if I can just highlight the text and hit a "copy source formatting" key or something like that.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
