Hi Folks,

Apologies if this has covered already (it doesn't seem to have been from a quick search).

Basically, the font adaptation dialog in Studio 2019 Freelance changes the size but not the font.

Hi Folks,

Apologies if this has covered already (it doesn't seem to have been from a quick search).

Basically, the font adaptation dialog in Studio 2019 Freelance changes the size but not the font.

I've changed the point size to a standard 12 point and the fonts to a monospaced font in source and target for easier reading but Studio ignores the font change although it does apply the point size change. Studio then tells me that "formatting in the original document may override font changes".

But if Trados is going to decide when to do this, why waste the user's time on a pointless dialog?

Has anyone managed to force Studio to adapt fonts 100%, all of the time, every time?

And if anyone from SDL is reading this -- why does font adaptation *not* adapt the font?

If I want to see what the document looks like in the original, I can obviously use the Preview. I don't need it in the translation segment editor, which I should be able to set up exactly as I want it.

Thanks,

Ed
