Very frequently, I would say, when I enter some word in upper "FIND" box, then press the "FIND" button at the bottom. It very often hangs there, especially after one or two consecutive pressing of the same button, then showing "not responding" on the windows tilte bar, and simply freezed.

Wordfast Pro 3.2 often freezes Jun 30, 2013

This is similar to what I've been experiencing lately. When working on a large file, Wordfast Pro 3.2 often becomes unresponsive and freezes completely. So, I had to downgrade to Wordfast Pro 3.1.5.

They are aware of the issue Jul 3, 2013

I had the same problem and sent a mail to WF support; here's their answer:

Dear Chriselle,
Please download and use version 3.1.5, available at: http://www.wordfast.com/store_download.html
It seems version 3.2 causes troubles on some systems. We apologize for the issue. The developers are working on fixing that.


BTW, who knows how to downgrade to version 3.1.5? Cannot find it anywhere...

Thanks!

At the link you referenced above, underneath each OS version you will see a link that says 'Previous Build 3.1.5'

We are currently working on WFP 3.2.1 which we will be releasing shortly to resolve this issue.

Thanks for you support,

Kristyna

Cursor position Jul 9, 2013

I've just reinstalled 3.1.5 on my Mac to be able to get jobs done unobstructed by constant freezes. I'm happy to hear you're working on a 3.2.1 version.

Since you're at it, I'd like to point out something that was introduced in 3.2, and I wonder if it was intentional.

Until now, when I finished and committed a segment and skipped to the next, the cursor would be at the start of the new segment. In 3.2 the cursor seems to fall at random spots in the segment, or maybe it carries over the position it had in the previous segment.

I don't see any advantage in finding one's cursor in an arbitrary position in the segment; in fact it really slows me down. Any chance things could go back to how they were on this issue?

It's a 3.2 feature Jul 24, 2013

Hi Ella,

You can't. This feature was added in version 3.2. If you are experiencing freezing/crashing issues in 3.2, go to Edit > Preferences (F9) >Terminology > and uncheck the box that says ‘Highlight terms in Editor with Box.’ This should allow you to continue working with 3.2 and take advantage of that feature.

Sincerely,

Kristyna

3.2.1 Beta has solved the problem! Aug 3, 2013

I'm grateful for Wordfast, really. As a back-on-feet translator without money to invest first. Its generous DEMO (500 limit of TM units) save my life big.

After being contacted by one of its workers and re-intalling a new testing version (3.2.1), the problem that started this thread has gone.
