Hello everyone,

When I translate an *.xls document and there are blank lines in a cell, Déjà Vu just ignores them, which means that the target text does not include a blank line where the source text does. Since it is really tedious to insert all those empty lines manually, I wanted to as

Hello Selcuk Akyuz,

thank you for your quick response.

That seems really strange to me. I am using Déjà Vu X2 (Version 8.0.480) and I did not change any settings concerning filters.
In the "filter options" section, it just says "xls - Microsoft Excel". The third tab is empty for some reason. For instance, in another row it says "doc - Microsoft Word - Nicht übersetzbare Notizen: + # @ A" (meaning "untranslatable notes"...). Do you think anything is missing the

Latest build Aug 19, 2011

Nothing wrong with your filter settings, but perhaps it is bug in build 480. FWIW, latest build is 486, please upgrade and test it again.

Still not working Aug 22, 2011

Hello Selcuk Akyuz,

Again, thank you for your help.
I have now downloaded and installed the very latest build and tried again. However, it is still not working. Déjà Vu keeps ignoring the blank lines.
Do you maybe have any more ideas what could be wrong?
Many thanks in advance.

Yours,
Stefan

Stefan,

I will try to find out what is going wrong if you can send the excel file and your DVX project file.
