Hi,

I am using Windows 2000, Word 2000, WF 4.20 Build 44w.

I had several files to translate that contained text on a gray background. When I cleaned the files, the text appeared backed in white on the gray background. These are not fields as in a previous thread.

The funny thing is that the text on the gray background cleans fine in Trados (according to my customer), so it's OK when I deliver uncleaned files. The problem just crops up when I clean using WF itself and need to deliver cleaned files.

PS I did post to the list, and the answer I got from the list was to upgrade to the newest build. However, I have had the experience in the past that when I give up a stable build for a new one, new problems crop up, so I'd like to stick with this one for now, if possible.

You could still upgrade just for the cleaning and see how it works, then go back to your favorite buildicon_smile.gif

BTW, I've been on WF for over 3 yrs now and build 4.22 t22 has proved to be the most stable - I am not sure it's still available on wordfast.net, in case just give a shout via my profile and I can send it to you.

Best luck
