I use Wordfast 5 with Word 2003 on XP. I recently created two txt glossaries, selected them in the 'Terminology' tab (the 'This glossary is active' box is ticked), and reorganized them. There is no blue highlighting in the source document for words that are in the glossary.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Type in Pandora's box (Setup => PB): Propagate1, and click on "enable Pandora's box". In "Quality check => Terminology recognition" click on "Enable terminology recognition".

If you have a big glossary, you may find CopySourceWhenNoMatch useful (type this in Pandora's box, under Propagate1).
