Batch Task API - Empty IText Fields
Thread poster: Dadrewster569

Hi, I'm not sure if this is the right place to be asking questions like this, but I'm currently developing plugins using the Batch Task API. Right now, I am running into a bit of a bug and I'm pretty sure it has to do with how Trados Studio handles empty IText items.

Within the UI, I know it is more than possible to have an empty source or target block, but under the hood, is it possible to have a blank IText item or does Trados Studio just prune it out?

Trados won't remove empty IText objects by default.
I believe you would have to do that yourself if that is your goal.
