Hi all,

I know I have the Wordfast icons to work with and that's fine, but I'd like to be able to use the toolbar in the menu bar too. Unfortunately, it does not work. Does anyone know how to solve the problem?

Thanks a lot in advance for your kind attention to this matter.

Olivia

Olivia, please clarify the issue. What do you mean by "toolbar in the menu bar"? Do you mean the "Wordfast" drop-down menu, usually next to the "Help" menu in Word? If so, what happens when you click one of its items? If these items are dead or cause an error message saying the macro can't be found, download and install Wordfast again - there was a short-lived Wordfast build in which the menu was inoperative. If your problem is different, let us know more.

Hi David,

thanks for your prompt reply. I have already tried your suggestion (unistall and re-install quite a few times at no avail), so I assume my version must be the one which had problems. what do you reccomend? Should I download the new 5.5 version?

regards.

Olivia

Hi Olivia,

You'd better download the older version (5.52y) just in case.

I had annoying problems with the latest 5.52zu and it made a huge mess on my precious Word file!
I may be the only one having troubles with the latest version but it seems like some WF users have been experiencing different kind of problems from mine.

Good luck!

Olivia, follow the instructions in WfReadMe text file, which is part of the Wordfast download. It tells you what settings need to be adjusted in MS Word (and provides instructions for classical Word versions as well as for Word 2007). Error 6068 means you need to change a setting in MS Word. When you do the settings, quit Word and start it again. Wordfast will run properly.

Panic withdrawn! Jan 6, 2008

Hi David,

thanks for supporting me on this miserable Sunday. It now works. I was probably a bit panicky because recently nothing seems to work. My printer failed, my house phone too, my cellphone fell and the display is no longer working, I tried to update the antivirus three times and the system won't take my payment... I am so fed up today.

Your support was like a rosebud blossoming in my dreary day.

Olivia
