My message went wrong Sep 14, 2007

I don't know why but it seems to me that my message didn't completely appear in the forum and I'm not sure why.
Here is my message again: I hope this time, I'll get answers.

technical problem Sep 15, 2007

Hi Nordiste,
So now I have both problems: one with Wordfast and one with Wordfast forum lol
I contacted the moderator and he's trying to help me post my message.
Anyway: I'll try again one more time to see if I have more luck this time.
So I was saying that when typing my translation on an empty segment, I typed the letter "I" by mistake in the blue codes which look like this: {0> so now I have {0I> so I tried to delete it using the delete/backspace buttons, it didn't work. When I wanted to move to the next segment, an error message popped up saying that I should edit/correct the previous segment first. But I tried to correct it, it didn't work.
How can I delete those blue letters and numbers that define the segments?
I hope that this time the whole message will appear.
Thanks in advance.

Cut it Sep 15, 2007

Select the "I" and press Ctrl+x to cut it. That's it.

Alternatively, press Ctrl+Alt+F12 in Word to turn off delimiter protection temporarily. When this is done, you will be able to delete the "I" using the Backspace or Delete keys.

Or press Undo Sep 15, 2007

Or, if you notice it directly after you've done it, press MS Word's Undo button (or use Ctrl+Z, which is the shortcut for undo).

Keep in mind that you can't always use Undo when you're using Wordfast because MS Word's Undo feature is too stupid to figure out when WF did one thing or many things.

Thanks a lot Samuel for those tips. I really appreciate it.
