CafeTran provides a few methods to transfer the formatting (i.e. bold, italics and underline) from the source segment to the target segment. This action is done by little red numbers called tags which you can see at the boundaries of the formatted words or phrases.

  1. On the keyboard, press the tag number shown in the source segment, at the corresponding fragment to be formatted in the target segment. Then just press the Esc key to convert the typed number to the red tag. That's the easiest and fastest method to transfer the tags.
  2. Or hold the CTRL key on your keyboard, and then click at (or select with the mouse) the corresponding phrase to be formatted in the target segment.
  3. Or press F3 (Fn + F3) keyboard shortcut to transfer the numbered tags to the target segment from the pop-up list.

You can also apply a format (i.e. bold) in the target segment which is not present in the source segment. Select a phrase to be formatted in the target segment, right-click and then choose one of the available format types (e.g italics) in the pop-up toolbar.

To let CafeTran omit some (or all) source segment formatting tags, select the "Automatic transfer of remaining tags" option via the Action > Tags menu.

See also the other tag actions in the Actions > Tags menu.
