Find Next Without Using the Find Dialog in Word 2008

Rarely do you want to find just one instance of a word or phrase in Word. Instead of trying to keep Word 2008's Find and Replace dialog showing while searching, which can be awkward on a small screen, try the Next Find control. After you've found the term you're looking for once, click the downward-pointing double arrow button at the bottom of the vertical scroll bar to find the next instance of your search term. The upward-pointing double arrow finds the previous instance, which is way easier than switching to Current Document Up in the expanded Find and Replace dialog.

 
 

Napkin 1.1

Send Article to a Friend

Aged and Distilled has released Napkin 1.1 with a new automatic guide feature added to the visual communication and screenshot tool (reviewed earlier this year by Josh Centers; see “Napkin Offers a Fresh Take on Visual Communication,” 16 February 2013). A temporary visual guide is now displayed when moving or resizing a Napkin item, and its edges and center point snap to other items on a napkin. You can turn off the automatic snapping by holding the Command key when moving or resizing. The update also fixes a crash that occurred when deleting an image from a napkin that contained a Call-Out, and patches some small memory leaks. ($39.99 new from the Mac App Store, free update, 8.6 MB, release notes)
