Hello,

After upgrading to Wordfast 5 my Word (Windows XP + Word XP) "refuses to cooperate" after closing a context search window. I have to kill the thread manually, restart Word, then Wordfast etc.
So far I haven't lost any work but in fact it is quite annoying.

Is there anyone who has similar problems ?

Thank you for any assistance

Adam

Trouble-shooting Aug 25, 2005

The Wordfast manual has some tips in the Trouble-shooting section. I recommend deleting "Normal.dot" file (or, better, renaming it to "Normal.old").

This file is Word's global template and sometimes gets corrupted, causing lots of glitches. If you close Word and get rid of the file, Word will create a new, fresh "Normal.dot" when re-started.

Careful: if you delete "Normal.dot" you may lose some of your custom settins in Word (such as your own macros, buttons, toolbars, auto-correct entries, etc.).

If terminating "Normal.dot" does not help, you can delete the new "Normal.dot" and rename "Normal.old" back to "Normal.dot" if you want to restore your previous custom settings.

This is rather serious, and if I were you I'd post the problem on the Yahoogroup where the creator of WF is lurking.
