Hi all
I've just had a moment of head-scratching here. Using Wordfast 5.1 I start on my slides and find that it is not picking up the text on the PPT master slide, only the text in other boxes on the pages.
The master is only accessible by "View">"Master" within PPT. Try as I might, I can't get WF to look at the text on the master.
Using the long-cut on the master of copy/paste/translate/paste/reformat is a chore but thankfully not too time-consuming on this relatively small job, but it would be nice to know if there's a dodge for a future occasion...
Thanks very much for any insight
