I am trying to use CleanUp Tasks to remove empty formatting tags from source segments (InDesign or InCopy sources).
The designers leave them in because they don't see them and they clutter up the translation editor and are automatically removed in the target, which will result in an error message at QA check.
Something like this:
I tried to remove them with the "conversions" option of CleanUp Tasks:
But that did not work.
Does anyone have an idea how to achieve this? (With CleanUp Tasks or any other Studio app/function)
Didn't these options below work for you? I haven't tried to remove tags with the conversions options before but I'm not sure this would work as that part of the app is designed to put tags in and not remove them... but I can see your logic.
wow, it looks good, really.
I have tried this PlugIn minutes ago.
It, unfortunately, ended with just a brief error message.
Actually, I am NOT going to follow it any further/farther, just leave a screenshot only.
Good Luck To You
Perhaps worth noting there are two:
The original developer didn't want to maintain them and there were some bugs, so we fixed them and released an updated version for 2017 and a new one for 2019. Not sure if you might have installed the old one?
I have executed "Sdl.Community.CleanUpTasks.sdlplugin" and got an error (not the old one).
If you're interested can you share your error message? It seems to work fine for me in 2017.
I am sorry
I have nothing now
I have deleted all of them at the time when I met the error.
