I'm using Wordfast 5zf on Office 97 + Crossover Office + Suse Linux 9.2. Most WF features work just fine, but every time I try to enable the Pandoras Box, WF crashes and I have to restart Word. I have no clue whatsoever. Please, is there anyone out there who can help me enter the wonderful world of PB?! Thanks in advance.

As your system is not the standard Windows/MS Office, there might be some incompatibility issue that the common user won't be aware of.
I would suggest you to post your problem in the yahoo group http://groups.yahoo.com/group/wordfast/ .

Good luck!
Grace.

Try editing the ini file directly May 11, 2005

I also answered in the L4T forum, but for the benefit of Proz readers, one suggestion is to attempt to edit the wordfast.ini file directly. I would love to hear if this solution actually works.

I tried and failed May 12, 2005

Hi Samuel: I tried to edit the wordfast.ini file directly, but unfortunately it did not like that. It probably couldn't recognize it. When I started WF again, it could not read the ini and asked me to define TM etc. again.
So, for the time being, I switched back to Windows and hate it. But despite my dislike for Microsoft WF works like a charm.
