I just upgraded from WordFast 4 to WordFast 5 as part of a computer change. My new computer uses Windows Vista.

One of my favorite features of WordFast 4 was the context search, which included the option of searching other TMs in the same folder. When I run a context search in WordFast 5, however, there is no prompt for this option.

Does anyone know how I can change my WordFast 5 settings to include this option (if it even exists)?

Thanks in advance,

Todd

I am 85% sure this is a PB command. Check the manual in the section where commands start with Context.

Good luck!

Go to Terminology > Other and check Search content in all sibbling translation memories. And you can check also below "Prompt for each TM".

I was missing this feature too after switchig to 5.x, but after I combined my tms I don't need it anymore.

Regards
Heinrich
