Anyone have a quick trick for hiding the visible target text and showing the hidden source text in WFC? (The reverse of ctrl+,) I want to be able to take a quick glimpse at the original text without all tags, target segments, etc., without actually having to open the original doc.

CTRL , Nov 3, 2011


I was reading a thread on how to show hidden text with a wordfast bak file. I think it was CTRL comma or in the wordfast menu in WC, Miscellaneous - Show all.

Thanks Thomas, I know. I want too show the hidden text AND hide the visible text, i.e. read the hidden text in the original format!

quick macro Nov 3, 2011

If I really wanted to do that, I'd create a quick 3-step macro which would, say,

1) turn hidden text all red/all highlighted/all wWingding/etc.
2) turn non-hidden text into hidden text
3) turn the text changed at 1) into visible text.

All that on a copy of the file, of course
