Any help on this would be greatly appreciated!
I've just finished translating a large file using Wordfast 4.12. The text contained index markers/index text, which I had to translate. There are also lots of bookmarks, but when I asked the client if these should be repeated in the target text, and was told that they weren't really important - the main thing was to update the index with the translated text. I followed the Wordfast instructions, but some of the index entries didn't show up in the updated index. This applied only to entries with what I understand are bookmark/hyperlink markers (square brackets showing up in red). Having checked with the client that these markers were not important, I then deleted them, and the index is now updated correctly. HOWEVER - throughout the document, there are similar red brackets, supposedly for hyperlinks, and I just can't find a way to hide them. The table of contents is now updated, but the same red brackets are showing, along with bold black dots and arrows - altogether a right mess.
Does anyone know what's going on here? I should mention that when I tried to clean up the document with the normal clean-up function, I got error messages 5904 and 4198 (whatever that means!) so I used Quick Clean-up instead without any problems.

Thanks a lot in advance!

P.S. I've already unchecked Bookmarks and Field Codes in Tools, Options, View, but to no avail...My system is Office 2000, Windows 98.

Delete the red brackets Aug 31, 2004

Just delete the red brackets that Wordfast put around bookmarks if the bookmarks are of no interest to your client. After deleting them update the TOC and everything should be fine. Upgrade to the latest public version to avoid problems like this.

Regards,
Gerard

Thanks for the advice Sep 9, 2004

Dear Gerard,

In the end, I ran the text through Wordfast again, this time saying NO to the option of showing the bookmarks. I've certainly learned my lesson from this one...Thanks for your help in any case,

Pernille
