Good morning everybody,

I'm unable to type the translation in the respective segment.

I updated from El Capitan to Sierra which is clearly a thing I shouldn't have done (Updates are NEVER for the good).

Has anyone an idea why the segment to be typed in is frozen? I can normally go to the next segment and also save the file etc., but I can't type.

Is that a Java issue? After the update, I was asked to re-install the previous Java version to open WFP3 which is what I did.

Thanks for any help and Happy Friday

Hi Patrick,

I updated to Sierra, followed the Java updates and it's all okay for me.

Try re-starting? Possibly installing the new Wordfast update that came out a few days ago will help?

Good luck!

Hi,

Yes, installing the WFP 3 Update solved the problem. If you go for updates you have to go for updates.icon_smile.gif Installing one and leaving out the other is no solution either.

Thank you DJ Hartmannicon_smile.gif

A different question: Oct 28, 2016

Not sure if it's worth opening a topic, so I just ask you guys here quickly.

1.) Anybody knows how to switch between the "entry fields" using the keyboard? In other applications, for example in Gmail, it is "Tab".

I have to "confirm all segments" in over 300 files and to make it a quick turnaround I need keyboard shortcuts, e.g. when it appears "file exists, overwrite?", I have to switch from No to yYs (without using the mouse!).

2.) There is no way to "confirm all segments" in multiple files in one go, right?

Merci
