since this morning for the first time I'm experiencing a strange issue.
As usual I have the "blue ball" icon of Wordfast on the Dock, to launch it when I need it. But at a certain point, after opening the Application folder in Finder, the WF icon is now a sort of page with the A icon of the application folder. When I open WF I get again the WF icon on the dock and when I close WF it becomes again a page with the A.

I deleted WF from the Application folder and re-added it again extracting it from the .gz folder downloaded from the WF website. After extracting it I have put it in the applications folder dragging it.
But nothing has changed. Apparently, this occurs only with WF PRO 3.
This happened while I had WF opened on the dock. I have iOS Sierra installed.

Do you have any idea of what happened? Maybe something in the application folder?

Thanks for your help

Don't worry, happens sometimes. Mar 12

it's something that happens sometimes. I'm not savvy enough to know why, but you can find several discussions on the net, like this: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/2148827?start=0&tstart=0 or https://macosx.com/threads/icons-being-replaced-by-diff-icons.40701/ .
