Monitors, please delete this thread.
It would be a better idea to post the solution you figured out, instead of asking for deletion of the thread.
Anyway, Wordfast Classic users can enable the FirstKeyDNS command in Pandora's box if they use Dragon Naturally Speaking. Explanation from the reference manual:
"Solves a problem caused by some versions of the DNS dictation software that makes the cursor jump a few lines up or down after a segment opens."
I bought word fast so I could participate in a very large project. The program was running very slowly on a rather powerful computer. I also have TRADOS licenses for versions 2007 and 2011, and they run fine on this computer. I thought DNS might be causing this because the dictated text was appearing onscreen at a very leisurely pace (note that I cannot really type well at all due to a disability, so I was unable to test this theory by closing DNS and typing normally). I was unaware that the amount of physical memory used by the application had to be set in the preferences. (this option is listed as "memory preferences" in the WF menu, which I had rather stupidly assumed was an option that involved TM, not RAM).
I set it to 1470 MB and now it's running fine. I shouldn't have jumped to conclusions before posting a question.
