Is it possible to translate a text in MS Word with a lot of text boxes with Wordfast? It seems Wordfast is ignoring the text boxes while selecting segments and I can't even see them unless I return to Page View mode! Any help will be appreciated.

position in the text box Mar 15, 2004

Yes you can translate with WF inside text boxes, but you'll have to position the cursor inside each box and press alt+down to start the translation sesion.
If there are too many text boxes, you might prefer to convert them into text (there is a nice macro sample in the files section of the yahoo group that Natalia mentioned), translate this separately and then paste into the corresponding text boxes.

Regards,
Grace.

IIRC only Quick-clean cleans the text boxes afterwards Mar 15, 2004

IIRC regular Clean-up does not clean those text boxes afterwards (if you choose the in vivo approach, i.e. putting cursor in each text box), only Quick-clean does.
