Wf says "Wordfast Sorting..." with every new segment

I'm using Wf regularly since this summer and I never had any problem so far that I could't fix with the manual, but this time I need some help since I don't know what is wrong (I'm using Wf 5.50y and Word 2003)...

As for other projects I used a Trados generated TM, converted it with Olifant, reorganized it after having it selected in the setup dialog. It is a small TM (70 TUs). Then I selected 3 glossaries and reorganised them as well. So far everything was OK, but as soon as I began my translation, I noticed that every time I do Alt+down to start a new segment a box appears saying "Wordfast Sorting..." and it takes a lot of time before I get to the new segment.

And there is another problem: After expanding a segment with Alt+Page down, Wf jumps back to the original (small) segment as soon as I go to the Wf menu.

This is a rather annoying behaviour, sigh...

I really don't know where the error could be hidden...did I check / uncheck something that I should't? I would appreciate any hint!

Thank you!

Unexpected TM Sorting in Wf Dec 9, 2007

To isolate the cause of problems, please always provide the:
Wordfast version
Operating System
Office version
Word version

Your post indicates you are not a Wordfast 'newbie', so I suspect there is some incompatibility with how Wf, MS Office or other programs you have loaded interact with each other.

When it comes to troubleshooting Wordfast, excess information about the problem is always best!

You are so kind...

Your post indicates you are not a Wordfast 'newbie'...

...but believe me, I AM a newbie: I did only a few projects with Wf so far, but I'm also quite curious and I try to understand how this "whole thing" worksicon_biggrin.gif

If it is a incompatibility problem, I have to check all the programs that were upgraded / downloaded since I have used Wf the last time without problems, am I right?

There were only some upgrades for Firefox and I downloaded some anti-spyware programs (SuperAntiSpyware Free and RogueRemover)...I'm still cluelessicon_confused.gif

Good night from Germany!
