I've been using this wordfast's feature which helps me a lot against typos and low speed on typing, on most documents. But recently it seems to be "broken": after each "alt+down", all I get is one word or nothing.

Does anyone here know how to fix it?

Thank you,

Right-click Jan 5, 2011

1) You probably should upgrade to the latest public version (5.52m, I believe).
2) Even if you don't, right-click in the MT1 box. The search string will be updated to the latest working setting. One needs to to that regularly, as the GMT commands seem to change on an almost-daily basis.
3) Other users have been complaining of the same issue for 2-3 weeks. Since I have disabled the feature for my current projects, I don't know for sure. Your best bet is to join the Wordfast group at Yahoo groups.

Use the current version (5.92m) Jan 5, 2011

5.52 is a rather old version (late 2007 / early 2008). Use the latest version (5.92m) and your problem should disappear.
