Hi,

I am new to WORDFAST and have just reopened a document I had been working on. How do I get back to where I left off. It keeps opening up at the beginning!

Thanks,

Susan

Set your cursor to where you last worked Jun 22, 2005

Hello Susan,

With Wordfast, you have to set your cursor to where you want it to start. Of course, when you re-open a document, it will start at the beginning, since that is where the cursor is.

Just scroll down to your last translated segment and put your cursor there.

I hope this helps!

Russell

You can use the Alt+Home shortcut - it's meant for precisely this purpose.

You can also try Ando Tools Jun 23, 2005

You can use Alt+Home for segmented documents. For other documents, or for documents on which you don't use Wordfast, you can use the same feature in Ando Tools:

Just be aware that if you want to run Ando Tools and Wordfast at the same time, you have to add AndoEN.dot (or similar) to the keeptemplate command in Wordfast's Pandora's Box, otherwise Wordfast will disable Ando Tools everytime Wordfast it used.
