Hello everybody,

Perhaps my problem is trivial, but I'm at a complete loss. Since I've recently used the "Fix document" feature in Trados 6.5 (with Windows 2000 and Word 2003), the source text in the file has stopped being replaced by target text. as a result I can see both source and target all the time with the tags. There's nothing wrong with any other function and everything works just fine (incl. clean-up), but I'd like to have only my translation visible when I'm working on it. Any ideas how to reinstate the previous view without reinstallation?

Best,
Piotr

Hi Piotr Nov 30, 2006

FYI, I moved the thread to the Trados support forum.

Hidden text Nov 30, 2006

Hi Piotr,

In Word, go to Tools > Options > uncheck the 'Hidden text' box under 'Formatting marks'. That should do the trick.

Thank you all Nov 30, 2006

for moving the thread where it belongs and for your support . I kept browsing through Getting Started, but I must've skipped the relevant part ...

But Stefanie's advice did the trick all right!icon_wink.gif

Best,
Piotr

Only to thank Stefanie Jan 3, 2007

Thank you so much. I had the same problem as Piotr. I lost 2 hours in trying to fix it. You did that in a second with your tip. Thanks, dear.
