Hi all,
I've started working with Wordfast Pro 2.4.0.1 only recently, and I can't seem to find the option to tell the program to ignore text passages.
In Classic, this was possible via untranslatable attributes, e.g., "marching ants".
Where is this option in Pro? I tried to find the info in the user guide, but couldn't find it.


Thanks!
Peggy

Dear Peggy,

You can use the "Hidden" format (Font > Hidden). Any text formatted as "Hidden" in the original doc will not be imported to Wordfast Pro.

After you finish the translation and "Save Translated File", you can mark all the text as un-hidden again before delivering.

Here is a relevant KB article:

I hope this helps.
