Changed from WFP 3.1.3 to 3.1.5

Not happy at all with the change, major "fu.." up as far as I am concerned, this updated has (at least for me) made the program very slow and extremely annoying to work with:

Whenever I click on a segment I want to go to directly (that is not adjacent to the current segment) the program freezes and takes about 30 seconds to start working again.

Same thing happens when I do a Find, this happens each time a look for a word and make a change in the segment, I then have to wait ages while the program is frozen before it moves to the next "find".

TMs no longer connect automatically so even reopening a project means I have to go to the TM window and click on "Apply" for the TMs to connect.

I can't open a txml file from outside WFP get a message saying "Can't create Virtual Java machine", I have to always open from inside WFP.

Etc, etc, etc

Would like to go back to version 3.1.3 but I can't find the installer on my PC would anybody happen to have the installer for 3.1.3?

Just noticed I can download 3.1.3 at the Wordfast website

Memory Preference Apr 19, 2013

Did you check if your memory preferences are set to max in WFP? You can find it in Edit > Preferences > Memory Preferences.

Check wordfast.ini files Apr 22, 2013

If you are using Windows 7 and above check Wordfast.ini files which are present in 2 places

1) $HOME\Program files\Wordfast/Wordfast.ini
2) $HOME\.eclipse\org.gs4tr.editor.brand.tdc.product.temp_\Wordfast.ini

you will see this
@user.home\.wf_workspace
-vmargs
-Xms64m
-Xmx256m

-Xmx256m should be changed to -Xmx1470m

Change this in both places if needed. Hope this helps and resolves the sluggishness in WFP

Try this Apr 25, 2013

Go to Edit > Preferences > Translation Memory > Un-check Perform TM Lookup automatically

Go to Edit > Preferences > Terminology > Un-check Highlight terms in Editor with Box

Let me know if this works.
