REQ: Better tag handling

Okay, I know the tag handling has already improved a lot, but 'd like to make some requests:


- display a tag symbol in case of Hide segment boundary tags (besides or above the target segment or a fixed symbol inside the segment)


There are different tags. Some are rubbish, but some are really important placeholders. Example: 

<field> contains some information about this subject.

would become

 contains some information about this subject.

(with a space at the beginning). This might lead to the situation that the translation does not contain this space (or it is inserted, but deleted after executing Trim leading spaces and the text would read (retranslated):

<field>contains some information about this subject.


Such an optional tag symbol as mentioned besides the target segment (or fixed inside the segment) would help to avoid this kind of situation.


- display tag content (see already here) not only with the F3 command


I know there is the F3 command. But it would be really nice to be able to choose between different tag displays to make it clear at first sight. Example:


The company had revenues of xx USD<footnote>, not to forget a net profit of xx USD.<footnote>


Usually you would assume that the tag is one of these rubbish tags, but here this is not the case (and with Hide segment boundary tags the second tag would not be shown). This could lead to


The company had revenues of xx USD<footnote>, not to forget a net profit of xx USD.<footnote><footnote>




I'd like to add:


- No insertion of tags at all in FMs, with different text

- Insertion of tags in FMs when there are no differences in text, only in case


No:


Zwölf Boxkämpfer jagen Viktor zum Spaß quer über den Sylter Deich.

FM: Zwölf starke Boxkämpfer jagen Viktor zum Spaß quer über den Sylter Deich. << no tags inserted


Yes:


Zwölf Boxkämpfer jagen Viktor zum Spaß quer über den Sylter Deich.

ZWÖLF BOXKÄMPFER JAGEN VIKTOR ZUM SPASS QUER ÜBER DEN SYLTER DEICH. << tags inserted


And, if this is feasible: if the difference of the FM in contrast to the original is located after the position of the tags, tags could be inserted too:


Zwölf Boxkämpfer jagen Viktor zum Spaß quer über den Sylter Deich.

Zwölf Boxkämpfer jagen Viktor zum Spaß quer über den schönen Sylter Deich. << tags inserted


 

Better no tags than incorrectly placed tags?


Meaning: when glossary entries are AA'd that span tags in the source segments, CafeTran will position these tags incorrectly in the target segment, many times even removing trailing spaces.


So perhaps it's better to place no tags at all in the target segment, when CafeTran detects that AA would insert glossary entries that span tags?


Example:




Glossary entry:




CafeTran will place the tags incorrectly, removing the space between OFF and draaien.
