I received a Word docx-file, where the customer has marked some sentences green, to remind me not to translate these. How do I make Studio 2014 recognise them?

Is the green made using the highlight function?
In Word use Find/Replace to find>highlighted (under format pull-down) and replace with hidden text (under format pull-down>font /checkbox "hidden". Leave the text strings in the dialog blank and just f/r for the attributes.
Studio will then ignore them on import.
After you export, reverse the find/replace to get the highlight back.

I should have thought about that, but I remembered only the formatting with styles from old Trados.
