I had some difficulties during the translation, ie the program just closed on me a few times. I made corrections to the translation, and now in the supposedly finished document I have 2 or 3 segments that are gray or green (as when in the translation mode).

How do I get rid of the gray/green background color for these segments?

Hi Lisa,

It seem to me that it is just a matter of formatting. Select the segments with gray or green background, then click on the style drop-down menu, and finally on Normal. That should do the trick.

I hope this helps.

Segment still open? Dec 27, 2004

When you say "supposedly finished document", I presume you mean you've finished translating it (and not that you have cleaned it up? If this is so, it sounds as though some segments were left open during the crashes you mention.
Go back and open the segment with the coloured backgroud and open it to translate it again (ALT +down). Then end the WordFast translation session and re-index the TM. Do the same with the other coloured parts. This should solve the problem.
Good luck.

the segment was still blue/grey after Alt+down!

I did what leo suggested and it went back to normal!

Thanks

Kim
