Hi,

I've got a text full of manual line breaks. Unfortunalty, my defining a new rule with "^l" did not work. After conversion to translatable format, I've still got full paragraphs in only one segment.

Can anybody help me on this?

Many thanks,
Caroline

I would suggest May 22, 2012

removing these line breaks in the source text which has been obviously converted from a PDF or some other format.

Hello Natalie,

Yes, this is what I did, but for delivery, I still had to reformat everything back!!! Now removing manual line breaks is one thing, re-inserting them where needed is another.

I still hope there is a Trados possibility to solve my issue icon_wink.gif.

Many thanks.

Can you share a sample of the file? May 22, 2012

Hi Caroline,

If you can email me a short sample of the document, or the document itself, I'll be happy to take a look for you?

see link May 22, 2012

Hi Caroline,
If by "manual line breaks" you mean "soft returns", see the link http://www.proz.com/forum/sdl_trados_support/209545-what_are_the_top_reasons_to_upgrade_from_studio_2009_to_studio_2011-page3.html
Paul gives there the solution for adding soft return segmentation to Studio by using the powerful regex formula.

cheers,
Adam

THANKS! It works now!!! May 23, 2012

Thanks ever so much for this link! After a couple of trials, IT DOES WORK FINE!!!

I still think SDL should make the way easier, since I've absolutely no idea of "regex", but thanks for these answers, Adam and Paul.
