Hi everyone,
i´m stuck and can´ñt carry on with my job (urgent as always).
I work with Trados 6.5.5 Freelance.
Problem: By mistake I have deleted the target field (in yellow), and now I caný cloze, or go back or even get out and start again. When I try to close I get this message that reads:
"cursor must be in source or target field".

Can anybody help? How can solve this and carry on? At the moment I can´t even get out of Word.

Thanks very much
Joaquim

Use "Repair document" May 26, 2005

Hi Joaquim,
Have you tried Repair document in the Trados menu in Word?

HTH, Ralf

Yes, of course: "FIX document" May 26, 2005

Quite right - I got confused with the German option (which reads "Dokument reparieren").

Hard returns - document formating May 26, 2005

Hi Joaquim

Trados Fix Document command is good, but it can cause problems with document formating - i.e. spaces between lines, paragraphs, because some hard returns can lost if yu close segment in such way. In such cases I try to insert hard returns manually, or manually format cleaned file.
If you can not close sedment, it's possible to use ALT+F8 and select reset document from Macros.
I wish you success!

another solution May 26, 2005

You are right Doroteja, "Fix the document" is not the best solution. I get used to press ctrl+z or Cancel as long as it is necessary to close the current segment with the corrupted tag, and open the previous one. It really helps.
