I am translating a word file. When I opened it today, the source segments of the already translated part of the text was gone. As soon as I have translated a new segment, the source text is also gone - as if MetaTexis was only producing a cleaned version. Even in finished translations, the sourcetext has becom invisible. Really invisible, because actually it is still there: when I open a translated segment, the source text is visible again.

Is this something new to make the file looking less confuse or is it something wrong and I should do something about it? If yes, does anybody know what?

My version number of MetaTexis is 2.972 - 05.01.2010
Thank you for any help.

Thank you, Thomas Feb 9, 2010

This did it. I wonder how that happened. Anyway, now it is back to normal.
