am using WF Pro/Classic 2.4.2
Windows XP Professional
MS Word 2003

Have been using WF for 2 years now without major problems and without this problem. WF Pro is now filling target segment auomatically with source segment which is quite annoying. Never happened before.

I have never used machine translations, this is disabled.
Automatically fill target with source is also disabled.

Is there by chance a shortcut that I accidentally pressed?
How can I stop this? Any idea?

Many thanks in advance

Copy Source on No match Nov 30, 2012

Hi Lolita,

When you Go to Edit > Preferences > Translation Memory, make sure that "copy source on no match" is not checked.

Also, I wanted to let you know that you should update your WFP version to the most current version (3.1.2), which you can download from our website here - . You will see that we have added several useful features since version 2.4.2.
