I also have a Wf question regarding the new version (demo). I decided to test it with an Indesign file and so far I like it. There's just one problem I'm having at the moment, and that's the segmentation. I can't seem to find an option to limit the segmentation with punctuation. Right now Wf pro is segmenting entire paragraphs, I prefer single-sentences TUs that I can extanded as desired like in Wf classic. Does anyone know how this is done?

Thanks

Roy

Hi Roy,

If you go to Edit > Preferences > Filters and uncheck 'segmentation on break' you should get the segmentation you are looking for.

Sincerely,

Kristyna

Expand/shorten segments May 18, 2009

Hi, Wilroy,
I presume you have found the plus and minus signs too, to expand or "shorten" (can't remember the correct term now, on the wrong computer) segments as well?

Yes, but I always get a dialog box that says the the segment can be shortened/expanded because they're not part of the same paragraph.

expand segments May 19, 2009

Hi, I am also trying the demo version for Mac, and I like Wordfast, in spite of its numerous bugs!! I have a long list of wishes, but one of the most urgent is the possibility to expand (or shrink) any segments manually at any time. Also the new version automatically translates and inserts 100 % matches, with apparently no possibility to decide yourself which shall be translated and which not; i.e. if you are translating an excel file with several languages in different columns, and copy the original into the target column, and thereafter translates in wf, the original will be translated automatically too...

Andreas
