Does anyone know if I can configure Studio 2009 to handle Page Background formatting in .rtf files (found via Page Layout menu in Word 2007).

The source files I have are .rtf and have a custom Page Color (Page Layout> Page Color > Fill Effects > texture > custom texture.

I can translate the text content of the files no problem in Studio 2009, but when I generate target translation files the background formatting is lost.

Currently my solution is to manually change the formatting for all target translation files (60 files so quite time consuming). I have isolated the image that needs to be used for the formatting by generating a multiple file web page from one of the source docs!

Needless to say I've spent way too long on this and would be interested if anyone has faced this problem and devised a cunning solution:)

Thanks,
Lydia

Quick test... Oct 15, 2012

Hi Lydia,

I don't have 2009 installed at the moment, but I created a quick test file following your instructions, tested in 2011, and the background is still there when I save the target.

If you can share the file I can test this and see if there is a problem we need to address? I'm not aware of any bugs in the RTF filter that we had to fix between 2009 and 2011.

Alternatively... what happens if you save the file as a docx and process that?

Regards

Paul

.docx not a solution Oct 15, 2012

Hi Paul,
Thanks for your reply. I've tried by re-saving the source file. One issue is the tags don't match my TM, then I was getting an error when generating the target :"Failed to save target content: An error occurred during a call to extension function 'MoveToLastChild'. See InnerException for a complete description of the error."

Maybe there is more to this than the fancy formatting!

I'll try and send a file your way.

Cheers

Lydia
