First, sorry if this topic has been discussed previosly.
The issue: When translating a segment and advancing, some of the segments remain with a green background.
Has anybody experience it and possibly solve it?
Thank you.

Does this occur in a table? If so, I have seen it. I don't know how to prevent this from happening, but here is how to remove the background colour afterwards: http://screencast.com/t/l3Sxb4Lm

more steps Nov 7, 2011

I've found that it is usually necessary to repeat the procedure (selecting the entire text, then clicking on Borders/Shading) several times, selecting in turn all the options (text, paragraph, cell, table, etc.) in the selection box.

Thank you all Nov 7, 2011

Thank you for your advice, but after trying with no results I decided to open a new file and see if now works better.
Cheers

Table? Word / Wordfast versions? Nov 7, 2011

You still didn't say whether or not this occurs in a table. Is there anything special in the document? What versions of Word and Wordfast do you use? I doubt starting over from the same source document will solve your problem, because the same causes usually produce the same effects.

Invisible tables Nov 7, 2011

Sorry, I was so centered on the file that I did not reply you.
Wordfast Classic 6.01. Microsoft Word 2007 version.
There are tables indeed, but with invisible borders.
I begin a new file and in this one I have no issues.
Thank you again.

I just happened to me Feb 21, 2014

I has happened to me. Working inside a table.

After I tried many times, the only way was to follow Dominique's instructions by selecting THE ENTIRE document (ctrl+a [or ctrl+t in Brazilian MSWord]), not only the table or the cell or a few cells.

I'm still struggling with the borders that were left around the text inside a cell (not the cell borders, but borders around the text only).

I'll keep you guys posted if I find a way.

And with the current version? Feb 21, 2014

That's an oldie. Have you tried what happens with the current version (6.07x/y)?
