I hope that Classic 6 fixes the irritating pop-up when glossary concordance in Wordfast Classic 5.92m finds more than one match. You used to be able to select the required match with a hit of the enter key, or cancel it with the escape key, now you have to go to the pop-up with your mouse cursor and select one of the options (and THEN delete it - if you don't want it!).

No need to delete Mar 22, 2011

I actually find this feature rather useful, especially as it gives source information about the different options. You don't need to delete anything. Just left mouse click on the one you want and press Enter. In fact, I suspect that you can scroll down the list with the up and down keys instead of using the mouse.

It IS useful, but it was more useful when you didn't need to use the mouse at all! (As a former RSI sufferer I'm particular about these things!) And if none of the options in the drop-down menu are suitable you are still forced to select one and only then can you delete it.

Mouse? Mar 22, 2011

It does not require using the mouse on my XPPro/Office 2003 system.

Apparently only an issue with Office 2007 (and Vista)?
