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.

 
 

Poll Results: On Releases and Announcements

Send Article to a Friend

Poll Results: On Releases and Announcements -- Last week's poll asked how you'd prefer TidBITS cover news of product announcements and releases. Historically, we tend to cover products only when they're released and available, rather than merely when they're announced, and 51 percent of the poll's respondents agreed with that approach. Roughly a third of the respondents would prefer TidBITS covered products both when they're announced and when they're released, while 16 percent voted we do neither (instead sticking to other types of articles), and 2 percent voted we cover only product announcements. We aren't sure if (or how) we'll change TidBITS's coverage of product announcements in the future, but we have been thinking about brief mentions of selected product announcements in addition to the product releases we would normally cover. These poll results, along with the discussion in TidBITS Talk, have helped clarify what readers might find useful - thanks! [GD]
