Sometimes the Real time preview is greyed out and there is no way to refresh it, so I cannot use it. For example now, when I work in an IDML file, I cannot click it.

Is this because it won't work with an IDML file or is it something else that I am doing wrong? This has happened other times too, when not working in an IDML file. Not sure what file type it was then though, probably Word.

Grateful for a reply!


Best regards,


A

If you want the realtime preview... Oct 9, 2012

... then it will only work with these filetypes:

  • Microsoft Word (.doc, .docx)
  • Microsoft PowerPoint (.ppt, .pptx)
  • RTF
  • XML
  • HTML
  • PDF

What you can do if you have InDesign installed is use File -> ViewIn and then the target will be rendered in InDesign.

Or you can use the File -> PrintPreview, but this may not be more useful than the editor view itself.

Regards

Paul

No InDesign Oct 10, 2012

Paul,

I do not have access to InDesign. Have I understood correctly that this then means that I will "only" be able to take a look at my completed translation in the Editor view in Studio before I send it back to my client?


Regards,


Anders

You can look at it... Oct 10, 2012

... in a browser with PrintPreview and you can look at it in a word document with Export for External Review, but you can only look at it as an InDesign File if you have InDesign.

Print preview does not work with InDesign files Jul 30, 2013

Print Preview does not work with IDML files on my system. I even had problems with Word files and had to install Office 2010 (which I hate) in order to get reliable print previews. The Print Preview behavior was complete random with Office 2003. Now I cannot get any print preview of InDesign files, and the external review document is not convenient to check my work. The View>Preview says "There is no preview available" and the File>Preview brings up an empty page in the browser.

Cheers,

Alexandre

I could preview after restarting TS11 Jul 30, 2013

Random behavior as usual...

Restarting TS and choosing "File>Preview" right away in the editor worked. Now I'd better not refresh it because according to my experience this will probably work only once.
