I´m using the latest version (demo), and I cannot get rid of one provisional marked segment!! It just appeared between other two segments and it´s EMPTY (both source and target fields). But I cannot delete it, close it or do anything...
Please help!

Try to press Quick Clean-Up Feb 24, 2006

Try to press the Quick Clean-Up icon in the Wordfast bar (ctrl+alt+q) - this should clean up the document provisionally. If not then try to turn on/off the icon of special symbols (¶).
If it still does not work, try to write between the segment symbols some word and run it through wordfast - it should offer you a translation of the word. Then press "end translation session", which should close the translation and leave the word untranslated. Then press again the Quick Clean-Up button.
Hopefully it will work.

Use F10 or use Word's Insert/Bookmarks dialog box Feb 27, 2006

Hi Reesi,

Have all your segments closed. Put the cursor at the beginning of your doc. Press F10 - this will take you to the
provisional segment. Press Alt+End.
In case there are more than one provisional segments press F10 again to go to the next provisional segment, ... and repeat this procedure until you get the message that there are no more provisional segments left.

Should all this not work resort using Word's Insert/Bookmarks dialog box to delete all "WfBmk..." bookmarks.
