I am using Wordfast Classic for MAC. In a pop-up message I disabled macros by mistake, and now the document appears to be locked. How can I enable the macros?

Reinstall Office 2011 Jan 31, 2014

There is no option to disable macros in Word 2011, so even if you had wanted to, you couldn't have done it. There is no option to enable them either (since you can't disable them). If macros (VBA = Visual Basic for Applications) no longer work in your copy of Word 2011, uninstall Office 2011 and reinstall it. It only takes a few minutes.

It was probably a macro warning Feb 2, 2014

If you've set Word to warn you if a document contains macros and you open such a document, you get these options: disable macros and open the document, enable macros in the document and open it, or cancel.

If you don't know what those macros do, disabling them is always the best choice. You can still work with the document and the macros will remain there.
