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.

Apple has introduced a number of software updates to fix problems or improve performance on a variety of Macintosh hardware.

  • The 040 VM Update 1.0 eliminates the tendency of certain 68040 Macs (Quadra/LC/Performa 630 series and LC/Performa 570 series machines) to hang when the 68040 processor caches and virtual memory are both active.

  • The 630 SCSI Update 1.0 patches the SCSI Manager to improve large file transfers on the Quadra/LC/Performa 630 series machines' SCSI bus.

  • Express modem users on the Quadra/LC/Performa 630 series should install the EM Sound Update 1.0 to add sound support to the modem; sounds generated on the phone line such as dial tone and modem carrier tones can be heard through the Mac's speaker.

  • Mount IDE Drive 1.0 can be used to access the internal IDE hard drive on a PowerBook 150 or 630-series computer when the Mac has been booted from a device other than the internal drive.

  • Color Classic owners can finally use their Apple IIe cards with System 7.5 installed, thanks to Color Classic Update 1.0.

  • The Macintosh TV now supports TV mode under System 7.5 with TV Setup Control Panel 1.0.2 installed.

All of these updates are available on AppleLink under "Apple Products -> Apple SW Updates -> Macintosh -> System Software -> Other System Software," and on the Internet via FTP at <ftp.austin.apple.com> and via Gopher at <info.hed.apple.com>.
