Hello everyone

I'm editing a file in Trados 2011 with some tag soup, and the translator really messed up the tags. For some segments, it would be simpler to just remove all tags from the segment and place them from scratch. But... how can I remove all tags from a segment?

Hi Samuel,

A useful exercise, when you get a few minutes, is to look at the keyboard shortcuts in Tools -> Options. You may find many things in there you didn't know you could do just through a 2/3 minute browse.

So Ctrl+Space will clear selected tag formatting, and Ctrl+Alt+Space will clear all tag formatting from the segment without having select anything.

It's more obvious in 2014 as we now have a big button on the toolbar that says "Clear formatting".
