My first impression isn't very good. There one glaring annoying issue...

Wordfast does not automatically select the first placeable. When I hit "insert placeable" in a new segment, it will pop up an annoying error message, telling me that none is selected. If I close that message with return, the cursor will no longer be in the target field and I actually have to click the target field again with the mouse to start working again.
This is very annoying and totally superfluous.
Why isn't the first placeable selected by default?

There doesn't appear to be any way to change this?

Dear Henning,

Ctrl+Shift+A (or the toolbar button "Copy Placeables") will insert all the placeables at one go.

As for the focus issue in the Table View, this is to be fixed. For now, you can try the "Text View".

I hope this helps.

Best regards,
Yasmin Moslem
