Hi, hopefully that is the right terminology. I've got Trados automatically filling the target box with previous translations, but it doesn't format them right.

How can I quickly get the text in the same format and font as the source (and ideally with the source tags!), apart from deleting it and rewriting it?
Sorry if this is obvious! I have looked through the online help info.

Workaround Mar 26, 2018

Copy (Ctrl C) the auto-propagated target text then delete it. Next, copy the source text into the target segment (using the Copy Source to Target command on the ribbon) and paste (Ctrl V) the target text over it, one character in. Then delete the superfluous first character.

It isn't elegant, but it does work.

Thanks, Mike, that's what I've been doing so far; I thought there must be a proper way to do it, something quicker. I guess I am just spoilt by the features I had in Wordfast.
