After pressing Alt-down arrrow after translating a segment in WordFast, the next key I press does not show up. The second one does.

A possible clue: On the task bar at the bottom of Word where Page, Section, Line Number, etc. should be I get "wordfast.ini ES>EN TM: C:/translation memory file.txt. This will stay there until I press a key.

Can anyone help me with this?

Have you got another Word file open? Nov 1, 2006

This always seems to happen to me when I have another Word file open. I don't know if there's any way to resolve it, other than closing the second Word file.
