Colours gone + other troubles

I have Wordfast 5, with Word 2003. I've been using both without problems for more than a year and now suddenly something went wrong.

First problem: there are no TU colours. I tried without the colours and it seems operational, but when I clean it up, I get the message: Runtime error: '5834', but the cleaning is okay.

Second problem: when I open a segment (without the colours, of course), the cursor appears 2 lines below the active segment.

Third problem: Alt +Insert (Alt + S) does not work, I can write into the target segment or copy& paste text from the source segment, but nothing else.

Fourth problem: the formatting collapses (this would be the least of my troubles, this is a file with a particularly tricky formatting, I've got to go over that anyway).

Fifth problem: I have tried about everything I could think of (check of Word + WF settings, Word restarted, TM reorganised) and sometimes (not always) I got the message "Source bookmark missing" when I wanted to start the translation.

What is weird is that yesterday evening I still did not have any trouble with WF (with a different file, but for the same client, same settings).

Could you give me some help?
TIA,
Eva

For all friends of WordFast (like myself):
It seems that the trouble was with the file - I copied several portions of the text into a new document and, even though WF refused to do anything with some of the paragraphs, the bulk of the text can be translated, as usual. I am saved.
