Hi all,
Today I upgraded from WF Pro 5.0 to 5.1 (Windows 10). Previously, I was able to add Word 2016 files with content in large text boxes (first and last pages) without any issues. Now WF won't import the text box content. Any idea how I can fix this?
Thanks
Will

How about importing the document with WFP 5 and translate it in WFP 5.1. Would that be a temporary solution?

Strange indeed, that this is broken. It was announced that 5.1 would be a minor change of 5.0.

Thanks for your reply. Version 5.1 replaced my 5.0. I thought of downloading 5.0 again but the only version I found on the WF website was 5.1.

It has only been a day, but I'm also finding 5.1 to be slower (glossary suggestions are taking so long to load that it's faster for me to type them manually; I had this problem with 5.0 at first but got rid of it by tweaking spellcheck preferences) and I've had a few issues with formatting (bold now gets untoggled whenever I type an apostrophe--minor issue but annoyingly frequent)

I'm baffled that the upgrade has been so disruptive. Anyone else having issues?
