I have only just upgraded to WordFast Pro 2.2.3 from Wordfast 5.1 and I have encountered one serious problem. Despite my keyboard layout being Spanish (traditional alphabet), Wordfast Pro seems to load the English layout, which results in an inability to use colons, hyphens, accents, brackets, etc. I cannot find any bar or key in WP pro to change to my standard Spanish keyboard. Is there one?

Hello Mario,
I see you posted this comment about 5 years ago, so would assume that you've resolved it... HOW?!?

Keyboard shortcuts Jun 7, 2014

If you have installed several keyboard layouts in Windows, you may have keyboard shortcuts that are used to switch from one layout to the other. If so, what are these shortcuts? You would want to make sure they do not conflict with the shortcuts used by Wordfast Pro. The surest way to avoid such conflicts is to have the key sequence set to (None), as here:


You can reach that setting via Region and language in Control Panel.
