I found this program easy to install and use, but now I am having trouble with documents containing form fields. The words \"Form Text\" appear in these fields now, every time I open a document containing them, and I can no longer tab between them. Does anyone no why this is happening? It looks like they\'ll have to be reformatted. Please let me know if you have any advice. Thank you!

Best wishes,

What Mr Chamollion said Oct 12, 2001

Hail Sue,

Since I knew that he was working downstairs, I have just spoken briefly with Yves Champollion, the developer of this CAT tool. The basic course of action seems to be to post your problems to the wordfast mailing list which is available at, although he did say that he would post a direct answer to this site. Let\'s see if he gets it together!

One Love

Try the newsgroup Oct 12, 2001

I just started using Wordfast as well and as of yet have not used a document with fields, but the best place to get your answer is by asking the members of the Wordfast Yahoo newsgroup. You should have been sent an e-mail from the moderator when you registered your download.
