Maintaining font in target text

I recently installed Wordfast Classic on my new laptop, which uses Vista as OS (I had Windows XP before). I am having a couple of problems:

1) The font is not maintained in the source text (so my cleaned up version is different than the source text and I have to "select all" and change the font every time.

2) When I do a spell check, it checks both the source text and the target text, which takes forever. Before it just checked the first word of each segment of the source text, not every single word.

Can somebody tell me if there are certain settings that I have to put in place? It was never an issue before, and I had installed Wordfast on many different laptops.

Thanks for your help!
Kay

Font problems Aug 12, 2009

Hi Kay,

I have experienced the font problem, but only on particular files, not all the time.

See this thread http://www.proz.com/forum/wordfast_support/118780-target_segment_doesnt_retain_source_formatting.html

You don't mention which version of WFC you are using, it might help to upgrade/downgrade if you're having this problem all the time.

Thanks Lori! Aug 12, 2009

I just looked and I actually have Wordfast version 5.60k installed.
In the target segment, rather than a particular font, I just see the number 2.
Thanks for your input. I will let you know if I figure it out.
Kay
