Provisional segments & export as TMX
Thread poster: PunchyEdge

I am new to Wordfast and currently do self-training. Here I encountered 2 problems:

The first one concerns marking provisional segments. I follow the instruction and use the F10 shortcut on the opened segment, but nothing happens. It does not mark the segment as "provisional" with a purple tag. I am working with Wordfast Classic in Word (Office 2003).

The second problem occurs when I try to Export a TM as TMX using Tools>Special Fliters. It does not export anything, but displays a message "No text to find and replace!"

Does anyone know a solution to these problems?

Dear PunchyEdge,

You mentioned that you use Office 2003, but you did not mention your Wordfast Classic version. If you have problem with Office 2003+WF 5.91i, please download and install the previous version WF 5.61k. It is very stable and should work perfectly with MS Word 2003.

Please check for a newer version in a month or so.

I hope this helps.

Best regards,
Yasmin Moslem
