How do you get to see the differences in non-100% matches (like the ctrl+M window in WF Classic)???
I can't for the life of me work it out and the online "manual" isn't helping.

Just to clarify what I mean Oct 24, 2011

Say I am translating "I have a cat". In WF Classic there is a separate window showing:

I have a big cat (with the "big" highlighted as being different)
I have a dog
We have a goldfish

Where in Pro do you see multiple matches and highlighted differences?

Dear Chris,

Currently, Wordfast Pro can show old differences (in the TM Look pane), but not new ones.

For example, if you have "I have a big cat." in TM and "I have a cat." in the new file, you should get "big" highlighted. However, if you rather have "I have a big cat." in the new file while "I have a cat." in the TM, you will not get a highlight. This will be available in WF4.

Kind regards,
