I have a huge (urgent) In Design translation for a client.

And I've managed to get the IDML file open, translated a bit of text as a trial and exported it back into IDML format. But when the client opens the file, Studio 2014 has made changes (to the fonts I think), which has had a knock-on effect on the layout of the entire document.

I've tried changing a few settings, but now it refuses to generate a target translation.

Anyone know how to get around this problem.

... are usually the result of not transferring across the tags that control the font. It may be that they are formatting tags only and perhaps you don't see them in wysiwyg mode. Try pressing Ctrl+Shift+H and see if this helps you see which tags are missing.
