I am translating a .rtf file with Tag Editor. In some tags I would like to write some words in cursiv. Unfortunately I click the symbol and appears "not assigned". How can I activate these symbols.
Thanks in advance

Hello,

You need to select the words first, then click the "italics" symbol.

Alternatively, select the words, then press Ctrl + I.

I hope this helps.

Source format? Dec 16, 2007

Hi maiso,
Please provide the details requested when posting a new topic in this forum:

When asking for help, make sure that you:
# indicate the file format(s) involved
# specify each software package that is relevant to your posting, identifying the version with the *full* version number
# describe the step(s) or process(es) which have triggered the problem.
This will help others to help you.


Depending on the format of the source file, not all formatting options may be available.

Best regards,
Ralf

Source format? Dec 16, 2007

Hallo Ralf,

Sorry I didn't explain well my problem.

I have a word file saved as Rich Text Format.
I use Trados Tag Editor Version 7.1.

The problem is

I have the source phrase in Italics.
I cannot write the target phrase in Italics. I try to write it in Italics but no way. The writing is normal.

The next source phrase is normal writing.
The next target phrase is in Italics. Why? I try to write it normal but no way. It is always in Italics.
How can I do to solve the problem?

I hope I explained it a little better.

Thanks in advance
Maiso

Preview Dec 16, 2007

Hi again,
Formatting is controlled by tags, regardless of the display in TagEditor. Check the Preview - if the formatting tags are in place, chances are that the target text is set in italics.

Are you certain that this is a straightforward RTF file? Or could it be a specific RTF format exported from another file format?

Best regards,
Ralf
