Hello I'm attempting to use the new bilingual facility. I'm "saving as" and then selecting bilingual without tags and simply getting a file with a different layout in the target language, not bilingual... Help

Which version of MS Word do you view the "bilingual file" in?

That shouldn't affect hidden text. Make sure hidden text is visible, ie. Hidden text is ticked, under File > Word options > Display:

Just turned on "hidden text" and there it is.

Thank you so much, saved my life.
