Translation memory works intermittently, i.e. WF Pro does not suggest me translations that I know that are stored in the TM. How can I force WF Pro to show me the translations stored in the TM? I am using Wordfast Pro 2.4.0.1. Thanks in advance. AT

Matches are not offered for modified (pink) segments, anyhow. It this case, you can use Alt+Space.

Moreover, you can go to Edit > Preferences > Translation Memory and check the option: Perform TM Lookup automatically > OK. Now, every time you move to a segment, you will see all its words in the TM Lookup textbox which will be automatically searched.

Still, in previous versions, there was a bug that makes all segments turn into "modified" (pink) when you apply the Spelling Check > Change All. Please download and install the latest version of Wordfast Professional available at:

I hope this helps.
