This problem is driving me crazy! When working on a Word document, first, when I get at the bottom of a page, I am not able to see any more the last lines and the first ones of the next page and have to switch to a different view (layout), for example web layout, in order to being able to see this text. When I have translated this text, I can switch again to the former layout until the next page finishes. So far, so bad.

But then, sooner or later, I cannot select text any more, e.g. when I want to do a context search, overwrite a word or whatever. I then have to close Word and restart it, and after a while the whole thing starts again.

In the beginning, I thought of course that the file was faulty, but this happens again and again with different files.

Has anyone else experienced this nasty behaviour?

I have Office 2010, Windows 8 and Wordfast 5.92m.

I am not able to say whether this depends on Word or on Wordfast or on the combination of both.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
