Hi,

I am having the following problem:

Whenever I come accross the symbol "®" in a text, Wordfast just freezes! I am currently working on a ttx file, but I seem to remember it does this irrespective of the file type. I am using version 3.2.0.

Has anyone come accross this and how did you resolve it?

Thanks!

No problem with WFP 3.2.2 Dec 12, 2013

I just opened a sample Word document that contains the © symbol in Wordfast Pro 3.2.2 and no freezing occurred. The only issue I noticed was that Auto-Suggest offered the preceding word without the © symbol, although there was no space between the word and the symbol. It would have make sense to treat the entire string (word + ©) as a single word.

The first thing I'd do is upgrade to the current version (3.2.0 -> 3.2.2) and see if it makes any difference.

Upgrade to 3.2.2 Dec 12, 2013

Hi Carolyn,

Freezing issue was common in 3.2.0, upgrading should resolve it. If for some reason you can't now there is a workaround in 3.2 which is to disable Highlight terms in editor with box.

To do this go to Edit > Preferences > Terminology > and disable the last check box 'Highlight terms in editor with box'

Hope this helps,

John
