Hello!

I have a Remote Glossary hosted on Wordfast Anywhere. Is it possible to edit a remote glossary on Wordfast Pro 4? Whenever I try to do it, it tells me that "it is not possible to edit a remote glossary", but it seems as if that was possible in earlier versions.

Does anyone have a solution?

That would be extremely useful, as we often change our minds regarding terms during the translation process, meanings usually become more clear halfway through the translation.

unselect "Read-only" Mar 6, 2017

Glossaries have a "Read only" checkbox; this implies that they can be edited.

The read-only box is unselected. I don't have a problem editing local glossaries. It only prevents me from editing remote glossaries.

When I try to edit a term, an error window pops up and says: "You cannot edit terms from remote glossaries".

I was wondering if there's an alternative solution to this.

Hi John! Thank you for your quick reply!
