When I had translated the first Word-document using WFC v.6.13, I opened the next one and started to translate it. But every time a new segment is opened, the first document flashes twice on screen, which makes me rather nervous. This flashing causes also, that the other document is second in order, so I cannot switch to another application with Alt+tab as I usually do.
This does not happen when switching to the next segment with alt+down, but when using forced segmentation alt+shift and when pressing alt+End.

Keep only one document open Jul 21, 2015

Not directly related to what you’re asking, but with recent versions of WFC, it is in your best interest to keep only one document (the one you’re translating) open at a time. If you really need to have the content of another document displayed while you’re translating, just save it as PDF and view it in Acrobat Reader.
