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.

 
 

Don't Use Speed Disk 3.0

Director of Technical Services, Baka Industries Inc.

Symantec announced last week that it has discovered a problem with the Speed Disk module of its recent Norton Utilities 3.0 release for Macintosh, and said that customers should not use that version of Speed Disk. The company says that this problem, which has been reported in less than a fraction of a percent of all units shipped, can cause data loss.

Symantec, which acquired Norton Utilities when it purchased the Peter Norton Computing company a few years ago, introduced Norton Utilities for Macintosh 3.0 in August. The company temporarily suspended shipments of version 3.0 and plans to replace all copies already in stores with version 3.1, which is shipping now. Symantec will automatically ship updates to registered users and upgrade subscribers within the next three weeks, and will post updates on various online services.

The problem with Speed Disk does not affect users of Norton Utilities for DOS computers, earlier versions of Norton Utilities for Macintosh, or any other Norton product.
