I am translating a word file. When I opened it today, the source segments of the already translated part of the text was gone.

Is this something new to make the file looking less confuse or is it something wrong and I should do something about it? If yes, does anybody know what?

My version number of MetaTexis is 2.972 - 05.01.2010
Thank you for any help.
