After many years using Wordfast Classic, I'm just starting using Wordfast Pro (3.2.2) for non-Word translations (in this case, an InDesign file). After a sticky start, I'm beginning to like it. There is though one thing I greatly miss: the possibility of marking a term or a segment I need to come back to later for further research etc. In Word I did this by simply and quickly highlighting it in red, then finding all occurrences either visually, or using the normal "Find" function. So far I've not found any equivalent in Wordfast Pro. The only way seems to be to add a note, but then it is not visible immediately in the translation. I have to remember there is a query there, then look for it in the list of notes. Does anyone know of a more intuitive way to highlight queried text in the translation so it is immediately visible in the translation? Many thanks, Sarah.

The equivalent in WFP is confirm/unconfirm. It's the orange asterisk icon on the toolbar, or Alt+Enter. When you press it, a little asterisk (white on black background) will be added on top of the little status square for that TU in the Outline pane. It's the equivalent of the yellow post-it note added by F10 in WFC.
