Hello all!

I'm using Wf 4.30 on Windows 2000, Word 2000 and I'm having some trouble with starting new translation sessions - Wf never opens the segment in which I place the cursor. It always opens (that is, re-opens an already translated segment)somewhere ABOVE. Really annoying! (hating it as I write). I'm really getting sick and tired of forcing segments. Please advise.

And another thing - how do I get Wf to automatically capitalize the first letter of sentences? The autocorrect option in Word is checked...

TIA,
Valentin

Try force segment Nov 4, 2005

Highlight the whole segment and press ctrl+alt+down. That usually works.

Thank you, Heinrich, that's what I've been doing... However, this is not normal, is it? It should open the segment in which I place the cursor, right? I thought I was missing something important.

It's rather normal for Wordfast, I'm afraid Nov 7, 2005

After all, the performance of Wf has improved a lot over the years, and it's so much cheaper than Trados, so I do not take these minor annoyances too seriously. After all its only one person programming it, not a whole team, and there are weeknesses in the code, but amazing what can be done in less than 2 Mb!
You can ask Yves directly at the Wordfast news group.

Regards
Heinrich

Solution Nov 7, 2005

Hi Valentin,

Why don't you install version 5.1? The update is free and it solves a lot of bugs from previous versions. You can download it at www.wordfast.net

I use it and I can open exactly the segment on which I place the cursor.

Let me know if it works.

Dan

Problem solved Mar 20, 2006

I don't know if you manage to solve this problem.
I have just discovered how to do that

You have to put your cursor BEFORE the first delimiter of the segment and not inside the segment.
WF will open it.
I was really annoying to me, too.

Succes.
