Hi everyone.

The client just sent me some ttx's from indesign.
He didn't send me anything else: TM, .ini etc
When I open the document, the following message appears:
"Failed to retreive tag toolbar settings for plugin file format
Filter definition not found: TRADOS Indesign filter"

I can press ok, and the document openes. I can work on it: open/close, edit tags, just that when I finish translation of one sentence and want to move to the next (Alt num +) the 2nd part of the message appears again "Filter definition not found: TRADOS Indesign filter". This happens almost each time. i don't understand why only sometimes.
Anyway. I can work on it, but what's happening? Anyone knows if this is going to affect the file and how to fix this?

Thanks a lot!

Hi Adrian,
This is a know issue affecting TTX files created with a different version of TagEditor.
