Hi All,

I am having an issue in relation to text in MS Word 2010 which was condensed to Font 0.35 in order to allow the figure expansion in French. However, after running the file through Trados the font type changes to Normal and the font condensing is not preserved.

I have tried File Types - Common - Skip Advanced Font Formatting (tracking, kerning etc.) but it does not seem to work.,

Any other Options in Advanced setting I could try?

Thank y

Did you try to add the file again after implementing the changes? Nov 29, 2019

From SDL Documentation Center:
Advanced formatting is usually removed because you probably will need to reapply advanced formatting after translation, so including such formatting merely increases the number of tags displayed during translation.

After you have changed the setting (untick the Skip advanced font formatting box), you should re-add your translatable file again with this new setting.

(If you first add the file and then change the settings, it won't work for what has been already added.) Because you don't mention any additional tags in source, I assume you did not re-add the file.
When you successfully complete this process, you will get a file with many tags after each next letter. Those tags are required to keep letters condensed. You will need to copy all of them into the target column. That is why they disable/skip it by default.
