Last week I updated to the newest version of WFP, and today I decided to use it for translating an Excel file. The source is in column B and the translation should be in column U. Previously WFP did this in one step using the Excel wizard, but now this does not seem to work. The window of the wizard displays only part of the explanation, but this is a minor issue. When I choose Advanced wizard I cannot anymore select the source column, it takes me right to Finish and then in the editor the top row is offered for translation, which is complete nonsense because that are the language names.
I wonder if I can go back to an older version of WFP?

Yes, I simply installed a previous version from last year which was in my download folder and hurray, it works fine! I disabled now the automatic search for updates. What's the use of constantly updating anyway when there is no problem?
