Helping a friend to learn how to use WFC and he has recently installed v 6.13. He has MS Word 2013.

For some reason upon trying to use translate until no match he gets an error message "the macro can't be found or was disabled because of your security settings".

We checked his settings and clicked "trust vba" and enable all macros. Checked that wordfast.dot was in the right location and active.

Alt down and other commands work fine, it seems only translate til no match is causing this problem? Weird... any ideas?

After several years with WFC, I've still never used that function and wouldn't know how to set it up either...

I don't use it much myself... Nov 3, 2015

I mostly covered the basics - TM and glossary set-up, alt down, alt end, inserting glossary terms, clean up!

But I was worried that like most newbies, at some point he would accidentally screw up segment delimiters or somehow corrupt his file and need to start over from a fresh copy (still happens to me occasionally!) and that is pretty much the only time when translate until no match comes in handy.

The weird thing about it is that WFC is working fine, I mean the macro must be there and properly installed because other usual features are working ok. Why that macro security error message just with "translate until no match"? It must be a bug, or perhaps some PB or other setting I didn't think of...

Hi Lori,

Yves is aware of this and has fixed it in the beta version that will be made public soon. Final testing going on right now…

Hope all is well!

John
