Hi friends,

I recently upgraded to Wordfast 5.61 (Mac, 10.4.11, Word 2004) and suddenly some of favorite functions are gone - poof.

For instance the TM editor. How can I export a TM for Trados without that function? What about merging glossaries? The icon is gone and the shortcut doesn't work either. Also the Setup function no longer works (I can work around that using the TM and Glo buttons in the sidebar, but I way perferred the other version).

Will I have to revert to an older version of Wordfast? Which is the most recent one that still offers all the functions? 5.53 did, but maybe there are later ones.

Thank you all for your help!

nothing really conclusive, maybe you should just revert back to the version that was working well for you, I agree that the TM Editor is absolutely essential! Strange though that 5.53 was ok for you, when it wasn't for me!
