Hello,
Does anyone know if there is a key combination to enter a hard space in SDL Trados 2009? I want to add hard spaces in certain segments in Czech, for example, but I can't find a way of doing it directly in SDL.
Any ideas?
Many thanks in advance

Hi Morar,

I'm not sure about Studio 2009 as I'm using Studio 2011.

But the flwg Windows shortcut is available and outputs a hard space in any compliant application:
Alt+0160 (on numpad).

HTH.

Cheers.

Patrick

Thanks very much Patrick, that works.
I also eventually found that 'Ctrl' + 'shift' + 'space' works in SDL 2009

I recommend learning the Alt+Numpad codes Oct 3, 2012

Alt+Numpad codes work in just about any application: Trados Studio. TWB, SDLx, Across and others. I recommend learning them if you use many tools (like me).

Issue entering unbreakable space in Trados Studio 2009 Nov 20, 2012

I'm using Trados Studio 2009 on Windows 7 - adding unbreakable spaces was not an issue using "ctrl"+"shift" + space and in one file it works fine, but in another it used to work but just stopped working.
I can't copy/paste an unbreakable space either, it just comes up as a normal space.

Any idea what setting I may have changed unknowingly, perhaps by doing some strange keyboard shortcut without realizing?

There was already a question about this on the forum in August, but no one responded, so I'm trying again..

For more details, I'm usting English (USA) to French (France) and the file is the only one in a project. I only changed to font to make it larger to view and added a new TM to the file, but removing the TM didn't change anything. If I open another file with similar parameters, the unbreakable space works fine...

Thanks to all,
Virginie

Hi Virgine,
I now use 'Alt+0160' in SDL Trados Studio 2009 on Windows 7 and it works fine.
Hope this helps
