Version 4.22 t18
Hello everybody!
Did it ever happen to you?
A part of one glossary is vanished.
After the Letter R there is nothing more.
Seems like someone swallows the tail of the glossary.
I must admit: maybe before I've typed strange combinations with STRG ALT.
BUT I can't imagine that you can delete something that easily without being asked.
Sometimes Wordfast even do not permit deleting terms when I do it correctly.

Please give me a hint.

Sad greetings
Stephanie

Yes,it's happened to me many times (especially upon pasting longish references in the ref. field), and sometime the "tail" wasn't even searchable (ctrl-alt-G). But solving the issue it's always been a matter of taking a look at the glossary file.

It's likely that a paragraph mark, or a stray tab or a linefeed has been inserted just before the part that seems to have been swallowed. Open the glossary file in word and scroll down to the last entry you can see in the glossary window: it's very likely that between that entry and the following one something weird has been inserted. Delete it, save it (as txt), reindex it (in Wordfast Settings > Quality check > Glossaries > Index) and it should work.

best luck

PS I don't recall any such incident since I updated to 4.22 t22, ages ago)

Is your BAK file OK? Feb 1, 2005

Hi Stephanie,

This has happened in the past. All entries might still be present in the BAK file in the same folder as your glossary.

Upgrade to version 4.22 t 22 or even better to the current version 5.

Regards,
Gerard

BAK file still complete Feb 2, 2005

Thank you very much for your answer, Muja!
First tip didn't help but the hint to update is very precious indeed.
Gerard was right: the BAK.file is still complete.

I'm highly pleased about your fast help.

Happy greetings
Steffi
