PPT document. I realize CAT tools still have a lot of issues when it comes to segmentation, esp. with ppt files, but it has helped me on some ppts.

Is there any way to simply override the "segments do not belong in the same paragraph", when trying to expand segments? Not only is what I'm trying to expand in the same paragraph, it's in the SAME SENTENCE!!!

Note to Wordfast developers: I know it's a work in progress. If there is no solution at this time, then a simple override of this would make my life truly awesome. One where I can simply tell it, "No fool, it IS in the same paragraph just let me expand this one" then it expands said segment

Thank you in advance for suggestions, assistance.

check the latest patch Feb 7, 2011

I seem to remember reading that the latest patch/update has introduced a solution to that problem (I've encountered it, too, and not been happy).
I haven't tested it yet, and my memory is fuzzy. Check, and read the release note for the latest version.
