Except a long line at the bottom of the screen (something like <fontformat color= "0#0#0" highlight="0#0#0" etc). Everything else seems to be normal. Does anyone know what is happening?

I opened up another Wordfast file, and the Find/Replace function worked while I had not selected a segment, and once I selected a segment (clicked in it), it would no longer work anymore. I am unsure how to get to the state where no segment is selected in the document, so this knowledge hasn't helped me.
