I'm currently working on a lengthy text previously converted from pdf to doc by AbbyReader version 8.0.
As I use Wordfast for my translations, segments remain uncoloured. Why is this happening.
Otherwise, segments are sequenced normally and TM is active, supplementing text where necessary.

I don't know why Mar 19, 2007

... but I can tell you how to fix it. Go to Format (in Word) Select Borders and Shading>Shading>No fill.

The borders you have the segments in will vanish and you'll get the familiar coulours back.

God bless Gerard de Noord who helped me with that!

Have Wordfastfun!
