I would like to know how to highlight text in ttx files with tags. During translation, sometimes I want to highlight text so that I can carefully proofread it later. Please advise.

Thank you!

add some special strings instead Feb 17, 2007

I don't think you can highlight text in ttx files. My suggestion is: add some special strings (such as @@@, ###) in the file. Later you can search these special strings.

Use the comment function Feb 17, 2007

TagEditor has a comments function which you can use to add messages to the TTX file. Make sure you display the Messages toolbar.

HTH, Ralf

I found the comment function. I want to change the color of the comments tag, but I cannot change the color at TOOL>OPTIONS>VIEW. Please advise.
