I'm trying to create an overview for myself of all the buttons, menus and key combinations in Wordfast and what they do, to hang up next to the computer. I've looked (and searched) through the manual, but some functions are not mentioned in it by the names in the drop-down menus, and simply trying them out hasn't got me anywhere. Could anyone tell me what they are, very simply, or point me to a place which already has this kind of list? Or a Wordfast manual with an *index*?

The mystery functions are:
MTMode Ctrl+Alt+A
EditTerm Ctrl+Alt+Enter
SeeTerm Ctrl+Alt+Up
BackColor Ctrl+Alt+B (changes the colours, but why, how?)

Hi Anne,

I'm not sure of the other functions you mention, but I do know that backcolor (Ctrl+Alt+B) pressed simultaneously blackens the segment to show the fonts that do not stand out against a white background (i.e. yellow and lighter colors). I found that very useful while working on PowerPoint.

Good luck and hope this helps.
