I have the last version of WF pro and Macbook with Office for mac.
Two versions before this one I could insert only the exact matches in the terminology whereas now I get a choice of several similar words. I find this function time consuming. Can I either disable this or enable the exact matches only to come up?
Thanks

Just check "disable fuzzy terminology" in the Terminology section of Preferences.

it works with some fiddling Dec 22, 2010

This was my first move, checking the box in the "disable fuzzy terminology" option and trying it this way. It works and it doesn't. As soon as I check it, it does not work. I have to go back, remove the check, close the window, open it again, check the box again, save it and it works!
It will remember the option for the whole session until I close the program. Then, if I open the program, I need to repeat the same procedure. It won't "remember" it.
It's OK, I can do it. Just in case somebody else is having the same problem, try this ...
