Hello all,
I have been working with Wordfast for the last 3 weeks and I am not really convinced. Well, it's one of the numerous tools that exist. There are many annoying behaviours. One of them is those popups warning you if you want to overwrite a segment or when a placeable already exists. Whet that happens, you lose the focus of your editing Window and have to use... the mouse.
When this operation is repeated 100 times a day, it's rather difficult.
How can I disable some of those warnings? If that's possible.
Thank you in advance.
Gabriel

Just tick the box that says don't warn Nov 24, 2010

Hi

As far as I know you can't remove it permanently but you can stop it during each work session.

The first time any of these warnings pop up simply click on the box that says "Do not warn me about this for the rest of this session" and then click on YES, that warning will no longer pop up during your current work session. Just repeat for any other warnings that may pop up.

If you don't want the message box to reappear with every new file you open, change the Transcheck settings in Edit >> Preferences.

Those are annoying warning messages. I can set the WFP preference to stop warnings sometimes. See the Preference menu for settings.

Dear Gabriel,

Please download the latest version WFP 2.4.1 released only a few days ago. It includes new options at Edit menu > Preferences > Translations. You can:

- Disable segment not committed to TM warning
- Disable target empty warning.

Also, now when you receive the warning for the first time, you will have two options: one for disabling it during the current session, and the other for disabling it for ever.

You can download and install the latest version of Wordfast Professional available at:
http://www.wordfast.com/store_download.html


I hope this helps.

Hi Yasmin,
thank you, it's a bit better.
Sometimes WF does not close properly and the message reappears.
But my other concern was the pop-up related to an already existing placeable. I suppose that it's not possible to change that. Anything involving pop-up messages needs a mouse interaction which can be quite time consuming in big projects.
Regards
Gabriel
