Toggling between two separate MT options

I'm a newbie using WF Pro on a MacBook Pro and am stumped. I'm connected to both Microsoft and Google translators. As I'm translating, I see 2 suggestions below with the "default" one automatically inserted in the translation box above. How can I select the non-default one?

I looked thru the WF Pro manual and did web searching but only found this suggestion, which didn't work on my MacBook Pro: "If you have more than one MT result (shown in the TM Lookup), you can move between them using Alt+Right/Left."

At present, my solution is just to copy-paste-edit from the non-default suggestion. Is there a menu option or key combo to remedy this?

Thanks in advance,

Different shortcut Mar 25, 2013

Dear John,

You can use Ctl+Right/Left arrows on a Mac. If having additional problems with shortcut keys, you can always reassign them via the Preferences menu.

Good luck!

I had to reassign every key shortcut, nothing worked by default.
