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.

Archive Old Emailer Messages

Send Article to a Friend

For many of us, email has become almost as necessary as air and water. And, like these natural elements, sometimes you need help storing all that you want to have available. Users of Claris Emailer 2.0 (reviewed in TidBITS 382), can get help from the new Emailer Archive 3.0, a freeware FileMaker and AppleScript solution that can store old email that has accumulated in Emailer's Mail Database file, thereby decreasing the size of the active mail database folder. Storing old messages in a FileMaker database also works well for faster searching. Emailer Archive is a 322K download available at FogCity Software's Emailer Utilities Web site; a 2.2 MB standalone version is also available for those who don't own FileMaker 3.0 or 4.0.
