Third post this morning, it's a sort of brainstorming about Studio!

Is there a way to change the background colour for locked segments BEFORE they reach Word?

I could always change afterwards, but it would be great to have the program to do it automatically, so I wouldn't need to do it manually.

I mean the VERY dark grey (almost black) that is almost impossible to read on paper.
I do NOT mean the grey for 100/CM or so, that can be customized inside the export feature.

Thanks.

Hello,

I thought you could change the background color of locked rows in bilingual review documents under Project Options. Do you mean this color: https://gyazo.com/9c7ee2567c1474e62c57188c60b24251 ?

Best regards,

Thanks for trying anyway.

The grey you show is the one you can change under Options or Project Settings, indeed.
It's not that one.
Try to "lock" one of your segments and export file. It will get much darker.

Well, to tell the truth I don't use Studio on a daily basis (there is a trial version on a virtual machine at home), but I am currently developing a tool for another user of SDL Trados Studio which, among other things, hides locked rows in Microsoft Word bilingual review documents exported from Studio. The issue is, all DOCX bilingual review documents that I have seen so far have the color that I showed in the screenshot, not any other shade of gray color. Are you saying that there are two versions of gray color for locked segments? When does the gray color from my screenshot appear in exported bilingual review documents?

Thanks in advance for your answer.

Best regards,
Stanislav
