Almost every time I quit Word it asks me if I want to save changes... When I haven't even opened Wordfast.

I use mac 10.4, Wordfast 5.53, and Word 2004

Anyone else have the same problem?

Hi Shawn,
Seems nobody else has your "symptom", myself included.

I have seen this behavior before and it seems to be related to the way Wordfast and Word "meld" together. Something has gone awry in their relationship on your Mac.

There are 2 things I suggest:
1 - try the latest Wordfast version 5 release first. Try that and if it doesn't work,
2 - find and delete the template. If you have customized your Word setup you will lose that customization.

I don't work on Macs, so don't even know if #2 is possible or relevant.

At least that is something to try.

Good luck,
