I have WF 5.22j installed and am using Windows XP Pro 5.1.2600 and Word 2003, (although the problem has occurred with other Word and WF versions as well.)

When I clean up a translated file with embedded graphics, they disappear in the cleaned version. I have tried cleaning in page view and normal view/with drawings displayed and not, but that makes no difference.

This problem does pop up in the Yahoo user group, but no definitive answer is given. One suggestion was that the graphics are there, but might have been moved beyond the page borders - any idea on how to "get them back" if this is the case?

In this case, I can paste the graphics back in from the orig. because there are only a few, but it would be nice to find a real solution.

I've had the same problem May 26, 2006

Hi Daina-
Iv'e had the same problem. I recently translated a 65 page manual and wound up having to paste in all the graphics and reformat the entire document at the end...

I adore working in Wordfast- this is the only glitch I've found so far, but it's a big one.

Just did the same thing last night May 26, 2006

Hi Jennifer,

I just did the same thing again last night. I just can't figure it out.

On the Yahoo Group it seemed that people thought the problem was just a newbie mistake of not understanding what happens when toggling between normal and page view. But my graphics are actually completely gone. It's frustrating to reposition everything after pasting back in.

By the way, Susana, I tried your approach, but it didn't work. These were embedded, uneditable graphics instead of text boxes. Thanks, though!

I might try posting this question on the group again in hopes that someone has experienced it recently and has a solution.
