Although I have done everything that is noted in the HELP section, I still seem not to be able to make it work:
I have a word doc that includes hidden tags. when I import it into studio 2011, I go to
tools
options
editor
SHOW ALL FORMATTING AND TAGS - nothing!

I tried this with the word doc showing the tags and also hiding them.

Don´t know what else to do. Does anyone have any ideas, did that happen to you, too?

Thanks!

formatting tags that do not show in normal view Nov 9, 2012

these hidden tags are formatting tags in different colors, i.e.
{0> text text text

Hi,

These are only visible in MSWord. The match values you'll see as a match value in Studio and not as tags in the text.

Regards

Paul

Sorry... Nov 9, 2012

... the forum misundestood your tags and didn't display my rezponse... I didn't notice on my phone!

If there are inline tags that are controlling formatting then you will see them usjng ctrl+shift+h which is a shortcut to do what yiu have already done. If this doesn't display anything then I would be inclined tothink there are none.

Send me the file if you are allowed and I can take a look over the weekend.

That is very kind of you, Paul, thanks, but due to NDA, I cannot send you the file. But I certainly do appreciate the offer!
I tried that shortcut CTRL/SHIFT/H, too, and it did not work.
The funny thing is that I can make the tags visible in Word, but not in SDL.

Regards,
Anja

Maybe you can... Nov 10, 2012

... delete all the content apart from a few sentences. Then replace the text so you are left with something containing these tags but is not sensitive or recognisable content.

Regards

Paul
