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.

Drop More Stuff with DropStuff 4.5 -- Aladdin Systems has released DropStuff with Expander Enhancer 4.5, the second half of Aladdin's dynamic duo of desktop compression and expansion utilities (the first half being the freeware StuffIt Expander 4.5). DropStuff offers drag & drop creation of StuffIt archives and enables users to create password-protected, self-extracting, and BinHex archives. DropStuff's StuffIt Engine extends StuffIt Expander's capabilities to include virtually all online encoding formats; version 4.5 of the StuffIt Engine enables StuffIt Expander to mount ShrinkWrap disk images and access files protected by Aladdin's Private File encryption product. DropStuff 4.5 runs under System 7.5 or later and is $30 shareware; if you registered a previous version of DropStuff, you can upgrade for $15. [GD]
