Since two weeks I'm using the new 5.0. The behaviour is more consistent, at least the document does not vanish anymore from sight when selecting a TM. But the Merge-button has gone, and from the manual I could not figure out how to merge a TM into the loaded one. Only a reference, that TMs can be merged in Word. Of course one can manually edit TMs and copy and past between them, but who controls if I do not merge uncompatible formats, e.g. unicode and non-unicode?
How do you merge in 5.0?

You have to do it manually. You can either do it from withing a text editor or using the new Edit TM button (next to the F-button, where the Quick Clean button used to be.

Or, if you have to do many merges, you can install WF 4 (take note of the install numbers, in case WF decides to lose them), do the merges, and then reinstall WF5.
