How can I check that unbreakable spaces are where they should be ? What marks them ? And where do I have to click to make them appear ?
In wordfast pro, that is ...
Thanks

Click on the paragraph sign Mar 14, 2009

Hi Odette,

In Word's "Standard" toolbar click on the paragrapg sign (next to the display size value, given as a percentage) to display hidden characters (spaces, nonbreaking spaces, line breaks, etc.)
The non-breaking space is then shown as °. To insert a nbsp, ctrl+shift+space is the shortcut.

Hint: a simple forum search would be even better than asking Mar 14, 2009

How can I check that unbreakable spaces are where they should be

Salut, Odette:
here's the first hit (on "blank space")
http://www.proz.com/forum/translator_resources/129961-blank_space_with_hidden_character_that_disables_end_of_line_in_word.html

and there's more and more (and more) of the same. In other words: a search would help you right there and provide much more immediately.

Hi Attila:
this subject is a perfect example of what we've been asking for for some time: sticky subjects.

Hi Attila and Vito,

I mean when I proofread in wordfast pro (not on the word preview).

Thank you
Ode
