Hi all,

I am using tageditor now translating a PPT file, I have this problem sometimes there are exactly the same words already translated, and in the next same line the translated line came but with the wrong tags, I tried deleting or adding the said missing tags with no avail, i could not copy and past, i could not insert, i could not delete.

Anybody can share how could i do to make sure the translated line and the original have the same tag??

Thanks in advance...

Turn off tag protection Dec 27, 2007

Hi Echo,

Most likely you have tag protection turned on. It needs to be turned off. To do this, find the padlock in the standard bar and click on it until it's open. Alternatively, go to "Tools" > "Options" > "Protection" tab and, under "Tag protection", unmark "Protect tags".

Then you should be able to delete, copy, and paste tags at your will.

I hope this helps.
