When I keep the function Display Translation Memory on, I notice that WFC v. 6.13 does not realize, that 100% matches are indeed 100%. Instead single words are displayed with yellow background, though they are identical in the source segment and in the TM.
When translating a document sometimes in between WFC does not recognize matches at all, even if I have translated the same segment a few moments earlier and a concordance search finds the translation right away.

Penalty Sep 19, 2014

Have you checked PB to make sure that a penalty hasn't been set for 100% matches?

Does this problem only happen on really short segments, or also longer ones?

Happens only in some segments Sep 19, 2014

Most of the time 100% is shown as 100%, but then at other segments one or two words are displayed yellow and percentage is less than 100%, though there is no difference really. Fairly long segments, more than 10 words mostly.

Punctuation Sep 19, 2014

Are any of the yellow highlighted parts surrounded by some type of punctuation by any chance? I have noticed a pattern here, somehow punctuation or certain number formats will cause this behavior, it isn't usually a big deal for me, just an occasional hiccup!

100% or 101%? Sep 19, 2014

Are you sure it's a 100% match and not a 101% match? If you have enabled in-context matches (under the TM rules tab), there's a glitch in 6.13 that displays such matches (101%) with a yellow background. It has been fixed recently in the latest 6.14 (beta).
