Yet another problem with Wordfast Pro 5.10 Sep 16

Yet another problem with Wf Pro 5.10: I run the spellchecker and it says there are no spelling mistakes (which I know is untrue because it contains Catalan words which should be picked up). I deliberately put a spelling mistake in and run the spellchecker again. This time it finds the deliberate spelling mistake plus all the Catalan words. But it then goes round and round repeatedly highlighting the same mistakes, even though I have said "Ignore".

Really, this is a substandard release and Wordfast should be doing a better job. A new version should be an IMPROVEMENT!
I've been loyal to Wordfast for over 10 years but I'm going to move to another platform and require a refund if these issues continue.

Hi
as not many WFP5 users seem to have the problems you're complaining about, did you consider the possibility that there's something wrong with your PC setup?


It's possible. But then why is everything else running smoothly? Why is MemoQ not a problem?

Even if there is something wrong with my PC, why didn't you answer my query? My email and web browser work fine and I got an automatic confirmation email from you and I check my spam folder like 5 times a day.


 
Yet another problem with WF Pro 5 Oct 26

I completely agree, WF Pro 5 has so many bugs and functionality issues...

The problem Reed James mentions, "not being able to add words to the dictionary during spellcheck", always happens to me as well. It is beyond annoying. (Another improvement they could make in this regard is letting the user add words to the dictionary during translation).

Also, sometimes it takes forever to advance to the next segment, the program just freezes, and the only way I can continue is

Also, sometimes it takes forever to advance to the next segment, the program just freezes, and the only way I can continue is by closing it and then open again (time-consuming and maddening)... then I get a Java error message. This happens to me at least 3-4 times a week (!?).

And of course I agree with many other users who posted here: it is dead slow.

Wolfgang Schoene I do not agree with you. I have exactly the same issue Reed James describes (my PC settings are fine). The only software I run into problems with is Wordfast Pro 5.

You not agreeing is fine, but I was just hinting at a possible cause for your problems which I cannot confirm. WFP is far from being perfect, but I cannot complain about stability or Java error messages or speed or else. Maybe the PC version is simply more bug-ridden than the Mac version.
