I have been happily using wordfast for several years. For three weeks now, all my WORD documents , whether translated in Wordfast or not, appear on screen in the Wordfast format.
When I 'clean up' the screen remains with the paragraph signs, dots for spaces and is generally illegible for my clients . The page prints normally, but the screen shows all the Wordfast signs. All documents I wish to view or send to clients are displayed in this format. I have tried to delete /uninstall wordfast but still everything remains in the style. I cannot write a page on Word without the style and signs appearing. How can I rectify quickly?

Nothing's wrong Jun 19, 2010

It's a just a view setting, that's why you can't print them.
Go to Tools/Options/View and uncheck the option that applies to showing paragraph breaks etc.
Or click the button on the toolbar that has a ¶ on it.
