I'm trying to disable the "Analyze" shortcut (which I keep bringing up by error when I type and it's driving me crazyicon_smile.gif ).

I looked in Wordfast help but it shows screenshots with text in the 'Binding' Column. When I go to Preferences>General>Appearance>Keys I have no text in that column so I don't know how to 'unbind'.

I'm using WF version on a Mac.

TIA for your help.

Try this Dec 15, 2011

After opening the keys windows, type "Ana" in the space below "Scheme:" that will bring up all the commands starting with Ana, as there is only one "Analyze", you will just see that command.

Now click on the command so that it's selected (you can tell it's selected because the "Name", "Binding" and "When" fields will change to reflect the content of the command), now click on the "Remove binding" button and then click on "OK"

Doesn't work for me Dec 15, 2011

Thanks Alex, but as I said there's nothing in the 'binding' or 'when' columns whether or not I click on 'Analyze'.

Neither is there anything in the Description or Binding boxes beneath the list.

And I don't have a "remove binding" button, only an "unbind command" one (which doesn't change anything obviously when I click on it as it can't find anything to unbind).

Mac Keys + Upgrade Dec 16, 2011

Dear Catharine,

1- The shortcut of Analysis (Shift+Space) has been disabled in the latest version. You can download and install the latest version of Wordfast Professional available at:

2- A general note about WFP for Mac: There is an issue that prevents the keys from being displayed. To work around that, go to the "Scheme" drop-down menu, select any other scheme, and then change it back to "Wordfast". Now, you should be able to display the shortcuts and unbind any shortcut you need to disable or change.
