I'm running SDL Trados Studio 2019 SR2. I inadvertently activated the protection of placeholders in segment targets. I can't find a way to deactivate this feature which is very cumbersome. Any advice is welcome.

Thank you for your suggestion. However it doesn't apply to Trados 2017 nor 2019 as there is no Advanced option under Editor. Interesting to note that Trados programmers omitted to add this feature to the keyboard shortcuts.

The button doesn't change color for me when I select/unselect it Dec 29, 2020

So it's tricky to understand if it is selected or nor. But it's right there in Studio 2019.

Thank you both. So stupid of me, I feel ashamed for having missed that in my investigations.

Happy New Year.

PS Elena, I'm surprised that in Italian "tag" isn't translated as "faro". It has the same objective although it's another domain.
