Disappearing buttons


Now in Wordfast Anywhere, the buttons displayed are the one you can use. If you don’t see a button, this means that the function is not available from the view/setting/action/task your are at the given time. See the example below.


In this example, in the first screenshot:

The file is opened

The segment 1 is selected, but it is not opened for translation.

The tab we are seeing is the Translation tab.

Note how we see only 11 buttons available (Web Speech is not available if you are not in Google Chrome).

Now in the same example, in the second screenshot, everything is the same but now we have:

opened segment 1 for translation.
