WF has a strange behaviour on one of my translations:
the text font size is 10, but Wordfast inserts huge 28pts tags (the purple < and } ones).
It's a bit annoying, any idea where it comes from?

strange! Apr 17, 2012

I wonder if your file was OCR'd?

converted pdf Apr 17, 2012

No OCR, but it was an editable pdf I saved into Word. I suppose that's the reason, with some hidden formatting fooling WF.

Now I've had WF Pro convert the pdf into rtf and the problem disappeared (so far!)

Edit the tw4winMark style Apr 17, 2012

Yes, most likely (or converted from a PDF, which often produces the same results).

The little purple thingies, which are called "delimiters" (not tags) in Wordfast Classic, have a special style: tw4winMark. For whatever reason, the font size in that style has changed to an unusually large size. The solution: edit said style and change its font size to something smaller.
