When I press ALT+DOWN, WFC 7.21 opens a new blank Word document instead of opening a source and target TU as it used to.

I have tried the "Remove Wordfast" option inside WF to reinstall it, but it doesn't remove WFC.

I have desintalled and reinstalled Office 365, but the problem persists.

When I opened Office the first time after reinstalling it I got the message "VBA macros disabled in this project".

When I press ALT+DOWN, WFC 7.21 opens a new blank Word document instead of opening a source and target TU as it used to.

I have tried the "Remove Wordfast" option inside WF to reinstall it, but it doesn't remove WFC.

I have desintalled and reinstalled Office 365, but the problem persists.

When I opened Office the first time after reinstalling it I got the message "VBA macros disabled in this project".

The Trust Center settings that are ticked are:
-Disable all macros except digitally signed ones
-Trust access to the VBA project object model

I can't download WFC again because when I click the download WFC button at www.wordfast.com, I get the message "site cannot be reached".

And www.wordfast.net is also giving me the message "site cannot be reached".

Would really appreciate help as I do not know where to turn to in absence of the old Wordfast Yahoo support group.

Thank you very much.

Accessing website Aug 14

I have just checked the two links you posted and found that https://www.wordfast.net/ does work for me, but the other link does not. Try downloading from the "download" link on https://www.wordfast.net/index.php?go=classic

Keyboard? Aug 14

Hi there,

A couple of things:
the link to wordfast.com you pasted in the thread does not work because there are unwanted characters in it. It shows up in browser as: http:// www.wordfast .com%2C/ (I added the spaces)
Once you remove the unwanted characters, target site is perfectly fine.

That's what makes me think of a keyboard issue. You didn't specify your OS so I'll assume you're on Win 10. Check the languages at the bottom right for keyboard input, sometimes, because of accidental typos, a shortcut activates a change of input layout in Windows.

If the problem is more serious, if you are a paying customer, go to your wordfast.net account and contact the hotline. They are very helpful and knowledgeable.

Hope this helps

Thank you both. Problem was solved by configuring a DNS in my PC (Wi-Fi and Enet interfaces). It seems for some reason wordfast.net had not propagated to whatever DNS my provider uses. Tks again for taking the trouble to reply.

I have the same problem Aug 17

I have the same problem, but I do not know how to go about whatever you did. I am not a computer expert
