Two step process? Aug 18, 2006

1. Save target.
2. Open with target application (a browser, Powerpoint), select all, copy to clipboard and paste to Notepad.

If you don't have the software... Aug 19, 2006

I leaned the basic idea. However, if you don't have software for the "target" format, how can you handle?

In my case, the "target" application is PageMaker, and I don't have the software. I can download trial version, but is there any other approach to obtain source text?

Thank you,
Hiromi

transfer to a txt Aug 19, 2006

using the standard ctrl-a, ctrl-c in ttx opened by TagEditor, then ctrl-v in notepad, or jEdit, or something like that.

Now you can write a macro in Word (for example) to delete all text between "tag brackets" (including the brackets themselves).

But the question is, why would you do such a thing? I cannot see any reasonable purpose. I mean, since TagEditor has been written for this kind of processing ttx files (and is nearly successful in that kind of work), why not use it?

Thank you! Aug 22, 2006

I have leaned how to make text file from ttx. Thank you very much.

The reason I want to make text file (word file). My colleague doesn't use Trados, so I was trying to make text file to get his help.

Another situation is that my client want to check the text in word file before DTP work.

Thank you,
Hiromi
