Dear colleagues,

I am a newbie in Deja Vu X2 and came across a weird error.

When a segment starts with a code and you select the first word (right after the code) by hitting CTRL+SHIFT+LEFT/RIGHT ARROW and then overwrite the word by hitting a letter, DVX2 joins the letter to the code, i.e. its color become the same as the code's. Quite frustrating.

Have anyone of you met this bug? Or is there a problem with my setting?

Software background:
MS Office 2010 EN
Win 8 EN
DVX2 8.0.585

Best regards,

Hi Gyula,
It does happen to me once in a while. When it happens, you just need to click on the segment above or below to solve the problem.
