I have had to reload Wordfast and now using the latest version. But unfortunately, I lost all my settings. I have been through the User Manual and have been unable to find guidance on how to have the differences highlighted when there is a fuzzy match. It was very helpful because I could quickly see what needed changing in the fuzzy match. Can anyone help please?
Many thanks

I can't help, but I'm interested in knowing the answer. But you don't say what exactly you're using. I use Wordfast Classic - is it that, or Wordfast Pro? I've also heard there's Pro 3, 4 and now 5 out there too, all with their respective versions.

In WFC? Apr 11, 2017

You must switch on Display Translation Memory, then you see the difference. It is not quite accurate though.

Hi Wordup,

In TM Lookup tab click on More Options and check Diff Highlight.

Thank you,

Ctrl + Alt + M

If you're working with WFC, I assume that's what you mean.

It's probably possible to set things to start with it on, but you only have to enter it once per session if you turn it on manually.

It's wonderful. I think either neilmac or Samuel Murray taught me that shortcut in a forum here somewhere.

Thank you all. And sorry for loooong delay in replying Jun 27

Hi everyone
Thank you for your replies and my apologies for taking over a year to reply (!).
I'm using Wf Classic and Ctrl + Alt + M does indeed do the trick, Michael Wetzel.
Thank youicon_smile.gif
