How can I make Studio to automatically sign-off all text written in red?
Quite often, my customer marks some of the text with red colour that I don't need to translate. So I was wondering if there is any simple way of making Studio recognize this and then automatically sign-off such segments?

If you only have a couple of paragraphs containing this red text, it might be easier to select them, hit CTRL+SHIFT+H (shortcut for hiding/unhiding selected text) or check Hidden box in the Font dialogue, import the document, and remember to unhide this text after generating the target document.
If you have quite a few of such red fragments, I would recommend you to use Hide / Unhide Text tool (part of TransTools for Word add-in). This free tool can hide text formatted with a certain highlight color or font color, or, alternatively, hide everything except the text formatted with a certain color. Use Hide / Unhide Text tool, select "Hide colored text only" (second option), select "Font Color: Red" from the dropdown list next to the option, and then press Continue button. This will hide the red text from Studio. Import the document and translate. After the target document is generated, use the same tool, choose the third option (Unhide everything) and press Continue to unhide previously hidden text.
