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.

Get Informed -- If you've ever wanted to try Shana Corporation's $295 Informed Designer, a application for designing forms, now's your chance to pick up the package at a minimal cost. If your modem can handle it, you can download the free 2.5 MB archive from a variety of online sites, or you can call Shana and request the package (on a CD) for a $15 shipping fee (more than $15 if you live outside the U.S.). Informed Designer offers an array of features for creating paper and onscreen forms, as well as features that help with filling out forms onscreen. The application requires a Macintosh with at least 2 MB RAM, System 6.0.7 or later (some features require later versions), and a hard disk. Shana says they are giving Informed Designer away to encourage people to learn about form design software and to generate sales for their add-on products. Shana isn't kidding about wanting to generate sales - when you launch the downloaded, freebie version, you get a series of splash screens telling you about Informed Designer's add-on products. The first screen reminds you that you must register in order to "suppress this sales pitch," and if you click the Register Now button, you are given an 800 number (or a toll number), to call in order to register. When you register, you won't be charged any money, but Shana will ask for your contact information and give you a serial number. [TJE]
