How do you make sure a translation stays in Wordfast Pro 5.1?

I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. Often, when I close a file I've been translating, the last segment I translated just vanishes. The next time I open it up, it appears as an empty segment or a suggested but wrong translation, and I have to spot the problem and put the correct translation back in.

I've taken to saving the file, verifying segments and Committing All multiple times as I'm afraid WF is going to undo one of my translations and it will slip through unnoticed. But even when I do all those things before closing the document, segments still vanish. Is there some way to permanently commit segments so that they stay there? A "Yes, Really Commit All" button that I've missed?

Maybe a bug Aug 26

Hi Anne,
I think I saw a bug report about this but thought it was fixed in 5.1. Are you using the latest version? Can you submit this feedback via the Help tab > Feedback icon? Someone from the development team with more knowledge about this will get back to you.

Kind regards,
