I have just started to use WF Pro. Every time I move from segment to segment within a documrnt being translated, a dialogue box flashes up momentarily. Its duration is subliminal and it is very tiresome on the eyes.
Does anyone know how to suppress this please?

'Feature' began with version 3.1.4 Apr 9, 2013

I started suffering from this 'feature' immediately after upgrading to version 3.1.4. I believe the flashing dialogue is a message that WordFast is attempting unsuccessfully to connect to a translation memory. The effect is that your translated segments aren't being recorded in a translation memory (even though you took the trouble to correctly specify one or more of them).

Try this experiment:

1. Translate a couple of sentences.
2. Don't create an associated .txml file, or delete it if it already exists.
3. Close the file you've just translated and open it again in WordFast.
4. Step down through the document with the blue down-arrow in the middle of WordFast's toolbar.
5. If the translated segments you created in step 1 don't appear, then they weren't saved in the TM.

I don't know what to do about it except stop and restart WordFast and hope that it finally 'catches'. Also, I just upgraded one of my machines yesterday to version 3.1.5 and haven't noticed the problem yet. Maybe the WordFast folks have fixed it in version 3.1.5.

I have solved it Apr 9, 2013

In settings, go to Translation then check "disable segment not connected to TM warning"
This stopped the annoying pop-up dialogues for me.
