Hello all,

I have the following problem:

Wordfast does not highlight a term from the Glossary as a placeable in the source segment

Wordfast: 5.51t3
MS Office 2003 SP3
Windows XP

Any ideas?

Sometimes Reorganize under Terminology does the trick...
unless you've already done that.

happens to me sometimes Feb 19, 2008

This happens to me, and reorganising doesn't seem to work for glossaries. What does work is closing Word down altogether, and reopening - the classic IT solution! I don't think I actually have to turn the computer off, just close all my Word windows.

Just tested with the latest version - in my case, there is no highlight of the words in the glossary...

is this a new problem? Feb 20, 2008

I can't see if you've mentioned that this has just started happening, but maybe you haven't got something configured properly? Something in pandora's box? Also, is the glossary ticked as active? Otherwise no idea, closing and reopening has always worked for me.

just happened Feb 27, 2008

Dear Mihail,

This just happened to me right at this moment. I reorganized and was puzzled that the glossary word was not highlighting because I KNEW it was in there.
Then I went to the Word show hidden text view and -- voilá -- there's the problem. The word had a stupid hidden character in it that did not show in normal or page view.

Maybe that could be the problem?

No, this also does not help in my case.

I am going to reinslall the OS on Saturday, because of this problem.
