Hello,

I would like to know whether there is a shortcut that selects all text in the currently open target segment only (something like Ctrl+A limited to the target segment).

Why I need this: With the translation I am working on, I can benefit from my TM - there are many 100% matches. However, in the file I am translating now, I mostly need to write everything in capital letters. Wordfast copies the correct translation from the memory but I need to go and select it with my mouse and hit Shift+F3. This slows me down, obviously.

Press and hold Shift, then press End, left, End, left etc until you've selected the entire target text. Then, while you're still holding in Shift, press right once or twice to ensure that you don't include the delimiter in your selection. Release Shift, then press Shift+F3 etc (in fact, I think you don't even have to release Shift since your next shortcut has a Shift also, but it may depend on your computer).
