Hidden text vs. clean-up Oct 30, 2007

Hi Salam,

the problem is: for some reasons I messed up and now microsoft word keep the source and target segments both,

I need microsoft word to keep only the target segment,


This is not a Word issue - you will need to clean up the bilingual document to remove the source segments (Tools - Clean up).

As regards the display settings when working with Word, search this forum for "hidden text" - there are numerous topics dealing with this.

Best regards,
Ralf

Thank you Oct 31, 2007

Dear Ralf,

Thank you very much for your help, it really helped me, I did cleaned the document up,
concerning MS word, you say it is MS word issue, I changed the computer and worked on another one and I still have the same problem, it gave me the impression that it is a translation memory issue,
anyway, I will read the manual again to see if I can figure the problem out and solve it,

Best regards,
Salam
