I’m preparing for a possible job and I ran a trail run tonight
I took a pdf, prepared it and then exported it as xml into a CAT Tool
I then just copied source to text to save time and changed the target text every so slightly as a first experiment.
The xml was then imported back into the pdf to see the result
Here are my questions
1 Just before importing, there is a dialogue window with choices of how to handle the import
There is ‘automatically fix text where needed’
‘Reset letter spacing’
What is the difference cos it text is automatically fitted where needed, why would I need ‘reset letter spacing as well’
Or to put it another way, why do I need to automatically fit text IF I have set letter spacing
Anyway, I ticked BOTH and when I went back to the document, in the very first box, there was an overlap of letters.
Strangely, this was the only time I could find such a problem but as I had changed the target text so little, I was hoping for zero problems
Finally, when I tried to save changes to document, I got a text overflow warning for a segment that I had apparently not changed at all.
Maybe the problem was already there but once again, why would I get such a warning when I have ticked both boxes?
I’ve also sent you an email as this is a very big job for me that I have to know I can do before taking it on.
