Wordfast - reverse context search?

Hi all

A context search (Ctrl+Alt+C) gives you instances of your highlighted term from the source text in the TM. Is there a key combination that searches for a highlighted term in the target text? (Without reversing the TM for source-target of course).

If there is no such thing, I'll suggest it to the Wordfast people as it could have unexpected useful applications.

Thanks and regards
DB

Just highlight the term in the target segment, and use the same key combination.

...thanks. My problem was how/whether the context check picks up e.g. inflections. I can't work out how systematic it is but for 100% identical words it's fine.
