Wordfast not recognizing terms

Dear all,
I've just posted this message in the Wordfast yahoo list, but I might get more answers by porsting it here as well.
I'm working with Word XP and Wordfast 3_35x.
It used to work alright but all of a sudden no more terms are
recognised whether it's a new glossary or an old one that had been
working. That's recongised as in recognised, not only that they're
not highlighted. Using CTR + ALT + any of the arrows doesn't work.
Terminology recognition enabled.
What am I missing?
Thanks and best regards,
Javier

Download a new version Jul 18, 2004

The new version, 4.22 t22, is very good.

With Wordfast, a lot depends on your version. I've had several versions of Wordfast and some are just flawed. I guess they try things and some work, some don't.

Best,
Esther

Windows/Office ver? Jul 18, 2004

Since you work with the free version I assume you have used it a while. Word some times gets corrupted, so I will recommend that you search for the file normal.dot, and delete it. A new one will automatically be created the next time you open Word.

If you are using a newer ver. than Office 2000 this might also be a reason. Try Wordfast on an older MS Office.

Good luck, and if this fails, try to delete all files in Windows' start up folder, and install Wordfast from scratch. You can of course keep your ini-files.
