I'm using Trados 6.5 and when doing job in word format, a big Green question mark appeared after I clean the document up.
The possible reason why this happens would be the use of cross-reference graphs. But the point is: how should I avoid such green question marks from appearing?

Trados bookmark handler macro Apr 7, 2005

would be the answer for such problems, if there are bookmarks, crossreferencies and so on in your document.
Befor starting the Trados translation this macro should be applied and then reapplied after the translation is finished.

Jerzy

Trados Bookmark Handler... Apr 7, 2005

...would indeed be the solution, if only it worked!
This is the single particular issue with Trados that I find extremely annoying - how bad Trados handles cross-references in Word. Earlier this week we spent almost two days fixing a lengthy document where the xrefs (or more precisely: their target bookmarks) had been completely mangled.

We've tried the Bookmark Handler before and it's just not cutting it. Always crashes after x handled bookmarks (50 or so). Asked Trados about it and they said something along the lines of "Yeah, we know. That's a limitation the Bookmark Handler has". Why, thanks very much...icon_mad.gif

Frustrated,
Benjamin

Google for Ando Tools and use it. It's one of the "must have" add-ons to Trados. Some time ago I have asked author to add bookmark handling feature and it's thereicon_smile.gif
