About a month ago I downloaded and installed a demonstaration copy of Wordfast Classic. It seems to work fine but since then whenever I copy and paste anything from the internet it shows up in a document as a hyperlink, eg
(squiggly bracket symbol) HYPERLINK “http://www.dpr.go.id” (squiggly bracket symbol) instead of just "http://www.dpr.go.id/"
or (squiggly bracket symbol) INCLUDEPICTURE "http://tbn0.google.com/images?q=tbn:elC4q_GfpoGW5M:www.stalvik.com/images/Flaggor/flag_indonesia.jpg" \* MERGEFORMATINET (squiggly bracket symbol) instead of just showing a picture of an Indonesian flag.

Does anyone know any way of stopping this, or better still reversing this, as it affects every file on my computer that has a link in it?

Many thanks in advance.

code VS content of a field Mar 12, 2009

Hello Ian,

It seems you are displaying the field code and not the content. Depending of your installation, use F9 , Ctrl+F9 or Alt+F9 to reverse the display. On of them should work.

Regards,

Olivier
