How to delete font-formatting tags in Trados 2007
Thread poster: xxxpenguin56

I have a problem I have never had before when processing a particular Word document in Tag Editor.

In this document, there are "cf" (font-formatting) tags in between almost every letter which not only makes the text difficult to read, but also makes matching segments unrecognisable by the software.

Now while I have found that overwriting the text in the original Word document gets rid of the tags, I was wondering whether there might not be a quicker way of deleting the "cf" tags? Anyone had this problem before?

Thanks for help.

Copy and past the text without format. You will have a simple text without tags. Is impossible to see that in the original text.

That works around the font-formatting tags, but also gets rid of all screenshots as well as the figures and tables including their automatic numbering.

Is there any other way, because it might indeed be quicker to overwrite all text rather than to copy-paste segment by segment?
