I activated "Processing tags" when creating my ProjectTM, but when I add e.g. italics or bold to a particular segment, when I next get a match for the same TU, the italics or bold are not automatically added in the target box.
I checked the TMX, and the switch is On:
What am I doing wrong here?
CafeTran can store in TMX the positions of transferred formatting tags but it does not save the custom tags. If CT could do it, it would need to put them inline with the segments contents, making the reuse of such segments as fuzzy matches (or exact matches in similar segments with no formatting) much harder. This is a sort of trade-off between the reuse and exactness.
> but even the positions are not being saved to the TMX.
Do you transfer the formatting via tags present in the source or apply the custom formatting to target? The positions of transferred tags should be stored in the unit's properties.
CT removes such tags from TMX segments. Why don't you transfer them via red numbers (type a tag number and press Escape) or a mouse holding CTRL button and selecting a phrase? Then, they will be remembered.
That's not possible. However, you might try the workaround via find & replace. For example, find all instances of a word in target segments and replace it with <i>word</i> (italics) or <b>word</b> (bold). If I come up with a quick solution to include custom tags when the Processing tags option is on, the update will be available right away.
