Wordfast starts anywhere in the document?!

Hi all,

I have a similar problem like Valentin, but in my case wordfast starts at its own ease at any place within the document.
I just opened the second part of a project which came in two documents (MS Word). The translation of the first part was OK but now (with the same TM) I cannot start at the beginning, no matter what I do, even CTRL+ALT+DOWN does not work. It's always saying "Processing 0%", then I get that hour-glass for some time and afterwards it jumps to wherever it likes to.
I also tried to copy part of the my doc to a new one but Wordfast keeps on starting NOT at the beginning. Starting Word (or even a complete restart) anew does not help either, nor does a new TM. Could there be something wrong with this document?
Then I read that posting here about similar problems and downloaded 5.21b, but to no result. What else can I do??

Just checked: Strange enough, with another doc it's working fine!

Thanks in advance!

It's getting even worse now I decided to start at that point where wordfast wanted to start (leaving the beginning for later) and everything was fine but now it skips whole sentences - and this is a document with almost ten pages...

@ Roby: Thanks! Unfortunately this document is due tomorrow I went on translating, clenching my teeth, and encountered a new phenomenon: Now it keeps telling me that my "Selection does not qualify as a segment"...

Maybe you should ask your customer for a new version: the file might have some problems (not Wordfast)...
