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.

CS Odessa Sponsoring TidBITS -- We're happy to announce our latest sponsor, Computer Systems Odessa, makers of the intelligent diagramming and business drawing program ConceptDraw. Unlike most graphics programs, which provide access only to the visible attributes of objects, ConceptDraw lets you not only access all of the internal data that describes a given graphic object, but also lets you use formulas to create relationships between objects and give them customized behavior. The result is a fascinating program - grab a demo copy and check out Matt Neuburg's review, "Make the Connection with ConceptDraw" in TidBITS-553, for a more detailed description. CS Odessa is also unusual in the Macintosh world by virtue of their geographic location - they're based in Ukraine, and were the first company from there to exhibit at last month's Macworld Expo. It's great to see companies from outside the U.S. contributing so significantly to the Macintosh world, and CS Odessa is even helping revitalize the Russian translation of TidBITS. [ACE]
