Hello,

I recently helped out a friend in his business, while he was abroad and so I worked on his laptop. I installed the Wordfast 5.15l1 shareware for PC version and worked with it all right for a couple of days. Now, it turns out that all his company backgrounds in his MS Word files (company vouchers and pricelists etc.) either no longer show the text (tho' it gets printed indeed and they do show as 'printing example') OR they show the text and no longer the company backgrounds, headers and footers. Please advice. We are trying to uninstall Wordfast now and set all altered settings back and then maybe back to a 'former secure setting'. Any further help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Even after uninstalling Wordfast tho'! Nov 8, 2005

Hi Graciela,

Thanks for your swift reply! I kinda forgot to mention that it's MS Word XP Professional we are talking about and that I first indeed tried to uninstall Wordfast. I had also read the entry you mentioned, yes. I'll keep you posted. Thanks.

Cheers,

C & C
