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.

Acrobatics -- Davide Guarisco <guarisco@stanford.edu> offered some addenda to Mike Lee's article on Acrobat in NetBITS-014:

First, with the newest Macintosh LaserWriter software from Apple (8.5.1) it's even easier to create PDF documents. PDF is now an option in the standard printing dialog box. It works fine, provided that you have Adobe's Acrobat Distiller installed on your hard disk.

Second, the Acrobat plug-in also works with Apple's now-defunct (but still functional) Cyberdog (although I am not sure about the "optimized" feature).
