I am relatively new to Wordfast Pro 5 and cannot get auto-propagate to work. I use local TMs and have tried everything possible I could think of - with no solution in sight!!

Any suggestions gratefully received

Bugs Aug 16, 2017

WF5, despite being released for several months already is still full of bugs.

I've found to turn things like auto-propagate off in the settings, then accept "ok", and then go back to the settings and turn it on again works sometimes.

If you're not familiar with the settings, there are countless tutorials available.

Good luck!

Still struggling!! Aug 18, 2017

Many thanks for your tip - but it did not work, sadly!

I have sent off 2 posts to the Wordfast 'hotline' and am amazed there is just no word from them. So much for after-sales support!!

Use the Feedback button Aug 18, 2017

I stumbled on the Feedback button (in the Help menu; 5.1.0) earlier this week. I used it twice. In both instances, I got a reply within 24 hours.

What was the solution? Aug 18, 2018


I am having the same problems. I ticked the right boxes, unticked en reticked them... nothing. So what did "Feedback" suggest you should do? Thanks!
