Hi all,
I have a question regarding spellcheck in WordFast Pro. Simply, it is taking too long. Waaaay too long. A file that Trados would check in 3 minutes is taking some 30 minutes in WF – and even longer. And what is even worse, sometimes it crashes, and of course it always happens just before it is supposed to finish. So I wonder – is it normal or do I have to set someting in the settings to have it work the way that I would like to? Thanks for any answer and advice. Marek

Normal, no, but why? You should ask help to their technical service, on their website, very helpful. Running the garbage bin (on the toolbar below, right side) can't hurt.
Good luck. Jacek

Dear Marek,

Try to switch to the "Text View". If this does not help much, especially for very large documents, I recommend using F7 instead.

Kind regards,
Yasmin

thank you Nov 1, 2011

Dear Jacek and Yasmin, thank you for your inputs. Yasmin, I actually think that in table mode it is faster, but it is maybe just my wishful thinkng. And I do use F7. What I did not do was to allocate more memory for the aplication. I was using default setting of 256 MB. Now I have changed it to 1470 MB and I think that it might solve my problem. If not I will contact technical service as Jacek suggested. I will keep you informed on the results. Once again, thank you very much for taking an interest. Best regards Mark
