I have installed the Wordfast trial version (wf 551, wfrelay.dll: 1.0.11.31) in Word 2003 (SP2) and have encountered the following problem: The mouse does not work anymore in the main screen of the application. I cannot scroll using the scroll bar on the right, I cannot mark or highlight any word, etc. The mouse just keeps working to activate the menus and icons.

Since I have installed this trial version, Word does not open documents which contain a certain number of text fields: Word just does not react when I try to open such documents.

As I cannot work under those conditions, I was wondering how to desactivate Wordfast to get back to the previous, sane and well working version of Word 2003. But I could not figure out how to stop Wordfast...

Any help would be wellcome!

Thank you very much for your time and help!

Claus

Just deselect wordfast.dot Jul 18, 2007

IN Tools > templates & add-ins de-select the entry for Wordfast.
Or close the Wordfast toolbar.
Never heard of such a problem, but hope you get Word working again.
Cheers

Mouse paralysed in connection with Abbyy Jul 18, 2007

Do you have an Abbyy tool (FineReader, PDF Transformer) installed, with integration into MS Word? If so, note that this is known to cause mouse issues when Wordfast is activated in Word.

If you want to use Wordfast, I recommend removing Abbyy's integration into MS Word (by modifying its installation). Abbyy tools are useful even without MS Office integration.
