When you need to use Find/Replace, you highlight the word to be replaced, but that word will not appear in the "Find" cell. You have to type that word or paste it there. This becomes a burden if you need to make a lot of word replacements.

Does anyone else find this an issue or is it just me?

Hi jyuan_us,

Yes, we do have people that monitor this forum though it is an unofficial channel for support. You could also post in the appropriate Yahoo user group:
http://wordfast.com/community_usergroups

Or contact hotline support directly via your user account at wordfast.net

Kind regards,
John

PS - When you post in these forums, please identify what tool your are using (WFA, WFC, WFP) as well as the version number (3.?) and your OS.

I'd prefer to having a discussion here. Sep 4, 2017

Let's wait and see if any colleague can come up with a solution to the issue I've raised.

BTW, didn't I write Wordfast Pro 3 in the title of my post?


Yes, at first I didn't see this, then I did. However, please note the exact version number. As you can see from the release notes, things get fixed all the time or we are already aware of a bug and working on fixing it: http://wordfast.com/support_release_notes#wfp3

Oftentimes, users have not updated to the most recent version and issues may have been fixed.

Best,
John
