Hello all,
have upgraded to the latest version of Wf 5.52b but since upgrading the OS to Windows-XP , and on using Ms Word 2003 -am facing the following problem -

1. Ms Word opens opens a window pane (displaying the
various pages of the document which has been opened)
at the left extreme of the document.

2. On beginning a translation sessiong using WF - a pop-up
says "the window is split, continue anyway"

3. If "yes" is selected, the "View" (in the Ms Word toolbar)
changes from "Print layout" to "Normal".

One has to change it back to Print layout to continue with
the translation session.

This occurs every time one closes a segment & re-opens it
the pop-up windows ("the window is split, continue
anyway") reappears again.

Have tried disabling the split (Remove Split) from the MS
Word tool bar. But the problem persists.

4. If "no" is selected - the translation session does not

Can someone help me out please. Disabling the split window & moving from "normal view" to "print layout view"often is disturbing & time taking. Also selected "web layout view" from MS Word tool bar. The problem of split window persists.

Many thanks

Addendum: Have found a temporary solution "increased the zoom factor for "Normal View" thereby continuing the translation work. But the problem remains that one has to re-select "print view" evry time one closes a segment

Split window- in MS Word 2003 Nov 16, 2007

Hello all- arrived at a solution -

Under Word fast setup/view option disabled "normal view".

This has solved the problem of the view switching between the normal & print - therby the case of the split window seems resolved.
