Wordfast 4.2

Is it possible to set up a new style for the unstranslatables in the EXT tab of the Wordfast Set up?

Example: I have texts where the untranslatables come in Indigo color. I know I could mark this text and use double strike, or marching ants, etc.

I just wanted to insert a new style in the drop-down unstranslatable font attribute list.

Thanks in advance.

I'm afraid that's not possible.

Regards,
Gerard

P.S. Unless you use Setup/General and specify the indigo style as external in External style for tagged files=Your style.
Higlighting your indigo text with 25% gray is easier.

specifying the indigo style as external in External style for tagged Apr 10, 2006

Hello Gerard,

Thank you for the prompt reply.

I tried to specify the indigo style as external in External style for tagged in WF 4.2, but it seems that the drop-down list (ants, gray, double strike) does not accept new styles.

Or am i doing anything wrong?

Rgds,
Salvador

Setup/General Apr 10, 2006

Go to Setup/General and doubleclick External style(s) for tagged files. Add the name of your style there.

Succes,
Gerard
