Hello,

I have a problem with translating Excel files using Meta Texis Pro.

I imported the source file in MetaTexis using the Excel file import feature then worked on the translation within Word.

Some Excel cells have multiple lines of text wrapped in the cells.

But when I made the final version, a lot of lines of text were missing (they were cut).

Is this a bug?



For example (visually):

For example (visually):


Cell 232: This is a wonderful day, and I'm going to have a great lunch,
however it would be better if I could find my missing lines and
if I could finish this translation by Sunday.


When I got the final version , I got this;


Cell 232 : This is a wonderful day, and I'm going to have a great lunch,
however it (CUT)


The results may vary, and usually it happens after 3 or 4 lines of text.

Any help welcome , otherwise I will have to manually complete all cells.

Good day.
