After "The placeable already exists", the cursor disappears from the segment

I'm using the full stand-alone Wordfast Pro, Version: 2.4.4
When inserting a placeable I use Ctrl+Alt+Right Arrow, followed by Ctrl+Alt+Down Arrow. But sometimes when working fast, I don't press hard enough on the Right Arrow and the system tries unsuccessfully to insert a previously inserted placeable. As a result a window pops up with the message "The placeable already exists".
Fair enough, so far so good.
The problem is that after clicking "OK", I have to use the mouse to return to the segment being translated and to place the cursor in the intended position of the placeable, so that I can insert the right one. This is cumbersome and really slows down the workflow. Isn't there a way of letting the cursor remain in position and active after acknowledging the "The placeable already exists" window?
