Does anyone know how you go about accessing the \"next match\" for a TU when using Wordfast?

For example, I have a few translation memories that I have merged together. They contain TUs that I have translated differently for various reasons.

This means that the memories contain some translation units with more than one 100% match (or fuzzy match) in the memory. However, I can\'t seem to get Wordfast to suggest these alternative matches - I can only access them by using the \"contexts\" button. Does anybody know if there\'s a command that would allow me to do this?

Incidentally, I hope this question hasn\'t been asked a thousand times before - I did also try joining the Wordfast users group on Yahoo but the sheer volume of messages meant that after about an hour of browsing through them, I hadn\'t got any closer to finding my answer!!

Try this, and wordfast will show higher or lower matches. Look at the bottom left of the screen for extra information about which match you are showing (e.g. match 1 or match 2).
