Dear colleagues,

I am working on a Word document with lots of graphics and text boxes which have to be translated in addition to the main text.

Only problem is... as soon as I use WordFast, all of these graphics and text boxes simply disappear from view. I have tried fiddling with every conceivable option in Word and have not been able to make them reappear. The graphics and text boxes can be seen in "Print Preview" mode, but not on the main screen.

Can anyone point me in the right direction on how to fix this? Thanks in advance for your help.

this way Oct 15, 2003

Hi,

I use a French version of Word so I might not mention the exact wordings but try this way:

In your menu, go to Tools > Options > View and then make sure Drawings box is checked.

If this is not the right solution, it is not far from it. Try several check boxes.

Good luck.
