Hello,
I am trying to use the bold/italics and underline buttons in a project where I am using .mqxlz files provided by the client directly, but they seem disabled (they appear in light grey and I cannot click on them).
This is not the first time it happens, sometimes it happens with SDL Xliff files, and in my case, it's pretty annoying as every time I have a quotation I am trying to remove the italics from the source language as I only need the quotation marks (using both the italics and the quotation marks in a quote in French would be redundant).
Is this something I could change in the settings?
It's not even like I can change that in the target file as I simply don't have it. Only the .mqxlz...
I can't even click on "Clear Formatting" and of course the shortcuts won't work either.
Thanks in advance.

I tried it and it worked: click on "view", then click on "reset windows layout"

Hope it helps

best!

Doesn't work Nov 12, 2016

Hello,
Thank you for the answer.
I have tried what you said, but it doesn't work. This button is used for other purposes I think, like where you want to have your terminology appearing, and so on.

Hi Amandine Nov 12, 2016

I think this is due to imported file format (.mqxlz). I have always the same problem with .txml files.
