EDIT: I just found the solution while waiting for this posting to be approved. I'll leave this here for posterity. My mistake was leaving the box "Also search in tags" ticked in the Find+Replace dialog. When you untick this, you can use the RegEx \itag or \tag to replace the tags with spaces.

Hi everyone,

I have a memoQ file that is based on an Excel file. The Excel file had manual line breaks in it. These line breaks appear as red "BR" tags in memoQ.

Large parts of the file have already been translated and are in the TM as 100% matches, but they all have the line breaks in the target segment. I want to remove these line breaks from the target segment and replace them with a space.

An example. The target segment looks like this:

All translatorsBRare great people.

I want it to look like this:

All translators are great people.

Is there any quick way to do this so I don't have to manually go into every segment and use the "Delete" / "Backspace" key to remove the tag?

I can use a Find+Replace operation to search for the RegEx \n and replace it with nothing. That removes the "BR", but it leaves me with an empty red tag.

I can use "Remove all tags" / Ctrl+F8 to remove the tags entirely, but that leaves me without a space, so I end up with All translatorsare great people.

Oh, and I can't reimport the file into memoQ to get rid of the tags in the first place (plus, the translations stored in the TM all have the tags in them). And I can't remove them in the Excel file before delivery, because I have to deliver the memoQ file.

Thanks for any help
