A strange thing happens: in a new text document (for the rfirst time and only in this new document) segments are transparent, and background is not colored as usual light blue, yellow, green and grey according to target fuzzy match %). I haven't done anything differnt and last friday it worked fine.
Can anybody help me?

This is not a problem; it's a feature in fact

Whenever a document uses its own borders and/or shading, Wordfast creates the source and target box without the usual borders and/or shading, to make sure the document's formatting is not altered.

Now, if the Wordfast boxes are transparent in the whole document and you cannot see any shading in the document, the document uses, most likely, white shading (this is often so with PDF to DOC converted files).

Either go on working with the transparent segments, or select all text in the document, go to Format > Borders and Shading menu in Word, and make sure Shading is set to No Fill. This will help, I hope.
