Hello

My colleague and I have encountered the following issue and would be grateful for your advice:

Wordfast picks up historical saved versions, such as deleted changes and modified text that is not visible to the end user anymore. It even picks up Lorem Ipsum text that was used during lay-outing process in InDesign and then deleted. This causes major confusions and we have even deleted all the visible text in an .inx file to see whether the tool would still reveal the text, which it did.

Is there perhaps a setting that could change that? It seems that Wordfast picks up too much for its own good, even text that has been deleted from hidden layers.

Can anything be done about it all?

Thank you

Polina

Hi jsingaram

Thanks for your reply. I have emailed to Wordfast support with the file but got no reply.

Which email address should I send it to?
