All of a sudden my Wordfast stopped recognising ALT + arrows, home, ect commands. It goes to a new segment if I click on the icon, but ALT seems to be somehow blocked.

Is this a known problem? Any ways to repair it?

I have installed updated version, but it seems to preserve wordfast.ini, anyway the problem still persists.

Help! Using mouse all the time drive me nutsicon_frown.gif

The possible answer is in the manual May 10, 2004

Dear Magda,

I had the same problem. Here's what I did: I looked into the Wordfast manual. In the Troubleshooting section I have found the solution: either to uncheck the option of MS Word being an mail editor in Outlook, or to reset all the shortcuts in Word.
The issue has been discussed recently on the Wordfast list: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/wordfast/

Problem solved - thanks! May 10, 2004

Thank you Alexandr (and welcome to ProZ.com forumsicon_wink.gif ) and Piotr.

My fault - haven't checked neither the Manual nor Yahoo group.

The problem is solved and here is how (for those who may read this topic later): in Word, Tools - Customize - Keyboard a list of shorcuts is shown. For some unknown reasons the shortcut fields for some of Wordfast functions have been blank - I inserted them manually and ...voila!

Thanks again,

Magda
