Hi all,

I have used Wordfast on a Mac for a decade now and it is still my favorite CATtool. The newest version has a very short toolbar, which is largely ok with me as I only use a few commands on a regular basis anyway. BUT it has given me the idea of custimizing the toolbar to my personal preferences. Sadly, that failed, at least in part. I opened Setup, UI and marked TranslateUntilNoMatch - and it appeared on the toolbar.

Getting bolder, I felt that ForceSegment and RestoreSegment, which I frequently use, would be good to have there as well - but I cannot even mark the box in front of the command. I know there are shortcut commands for these, but I do prefer the toolbar (I use quite a few different CATtools and other software and being the more visual type, I just keep mixing up the shortcuts).

So, is there a way of making customizing the toolbar in WordFast Classic to show lower order commands, in my case ForceSegment and RestoreSegment?

Any ideas and input will be much appreciated!

No, I’m afraid you willl have to use the corresponding keyboard shortcuts, or access them via the Wordfast menu.

The UI tab will only let you hide/unhide toolbar icons that were designed to be included in the toolbar.

Possible via QAT in Windows Feb 10, 2016

What Windows users can do, however, is add the corresponding macro commands (e.g. Wordfast.M1.WfForceSegment) to the Quick Access Toolbar (QAT), like they would with any built-in Word command:

Since there’s no QAT in Word 2011, Mac users do not have this possibility.
