I'm still a new user of Wordfast. I have solved some of the shortcut key problems I had before, but I still can't get the Alt+ Home one work. (This key combination is supposed to bring you right back to where the last session ended when you resume translation on a long document). This is a vital function I don't want to miss. Can anyone help me with this? Thank you.

Try the Macros Menu Apr 17, 2008


I have the same problem. You could try this: Alt+F8 (opens the macros menu), scroll down and select WfReStart. Works for me.

Good luck!

Creating a new shortcut key for WfRestart Apr 17, 2008

Thank you! That worked. What's more, as I thought it would be much nicer to have a shortcut key to run that macro without going through macro setting each time I was able to customize my own shortcut key combination to do the work. So I can use it every time I resume a session in order to go right back to where I stopped last time. I wouldn't have been able to achieve this without you telling me about macro..thank you!
