With Trados 6.5...

When I use the shortcuts (alt ctrl down, ...) to copy tags in the destination segment, il got them in "rough" format (eg.
) instead of graphical format (grey square or arrows)
I re-installed the whole bunch but without success.

Any idea someone ?

In the standard toolbar you have three diamond-like icons ("No tag text","Partial tag text", "Complete Tag text"). Could it be, you've been missing them, i.e. what they're intended for?

When I copy-paste the tags from de source segment, into the target segment everything's all right but it doesn't work with the short-cuts -
