I have just bought the latest version of WordFast through the Proz Group Buying. I have installed it on my MSWord 97 (old, I know, but I prefer it to Word 2000).
Now, when I try to create a new glossary, instead of showing the language pairs (as it says in the training), I get the message "runtime error 424".
What does that mean or better: how can I repair it in order to create my own glossaries?
I have looked everywhere, but I can't find any help anywhere.
Thanks a lot!
Cornetto

An annoying bug that has been reported on the WF mailing list twice already. Try downloading the previous version of WF (it says "previous build" on the WF download page). The bug is not present if you simply create a plaintext file in Notepad, and then select that file as your glossary -- the bug only applies to creating a new glossary from within WF.

Many thanks Samuel. I tried your plaintext recommendation and now WF is working perfectly. Feb 11, 2008
