The source and and target segments do not show any background colours- they all remain white. As a result it is difficult to tell when Wordfast has a match.
This is happening only with some translated documents.

Problem solved Jun 6, 2006

Problem solved by David Daduc from the Wordfast support team.
All I needed to do was select all text in the document and set Shading to "none" (by going Format > Borders and Shading > Shading > No fill menu in Word). The document must have been converted from PDF using an ABBYY programme,
Thanks to everybody who tried to solve the problem.

same problem but..... Apr 19, 2007

I can set the shading to "no fill" not to "none" what happens then is that I still have no shaded boxes (everything is still white) but the black outlines of the source and target boxes disappear too.

The strange thing is that my Blue boxes together with the green, yellow or gray target boxes do sometimes appear in the document but most of the time not...

Any ideas anyone?
