Hi, when I translate a text and I have a doubt on a word I usually highlight it to check it again after completing all the text. With wordfast pro I cannot find out how to highlight words as I a usually did with wordfast classic. Can anybody help me to do it? or is it not possible?
Thank you

it is not possible.
For this, I use Notes in WF-PRO.

Hi Lucia,

As Dan mentioned, you cannot highlight an individual word, but you can use the notes feature. To do so, go to the segment that contains the word in question and click add note (Alt + Shift +N). Once you have completed your translation, you can use the outline view to filter segments with notes and go back to check those segments.

Hope this helps,
