I'm working on a file in an existing project. For this file, the PDF to Word conversion was very sloppy, and I would like to make changes to the source text.

Where are the settings that allow me to now start editing source text?

Thanks

for existing projects? Nov 20, 2012

Hi Emma,

Your nice article appears to address the situation when setting up a new project.

I have an existing project -- where are the "edit source text" settings for it?

Thanks!

Quote from my article;)

If you discover that it is disabled half way through a translation, you can go back and enable it.


Just go to project settings>Project ... and enable the same box as in the screenshot.
