Hi, I use Workbech FL 7 and I´m using Arial. When I open a new segment, the font changes to Times new roman. Any light on this?

Thanks

Multiterm or Trados Workbench? Jan 30, 2007

Hi dubloc,

Font changes have been discussed many times in the Trados forum (see for example http://www.proz.com/topic/61736 or search the forum for "font changes" or "styles").

If, as I suspect, your problem is with Trados FL 7 and not MultiTerm (which doesn't segment text anyway), then it's probably occurring because the styles defined in your source Word document use Times New Roman.

You can either change the Normal style in the original document to Arial or work in Tag Editor, which doesn't use Word styles and will maintain the source formatting.

HTH

Giles

Ooops, I just realized I wrote Multiterm instead of Workbech! I´m going to try you suggestion and see if it works. Thanks
