No Issue Next Week -- We won't be publishing TidBITS next Monday to give everyone on the staff a break, particularly Jeff Carlson, who's just finishing iMovie 3: Visual QuickStart Guide and looking forward to a relaxing week culminating with his birthday on May 30th. Also, Tonya and Tristan and I will be driving to Tonya's sister's graduation from Oberlin College; though we don't have an iPod, the iTunes Music Store has inspired me to put together a couple of MP3 CDs of our favorite music to play in an MP3-capable portable CD player we received as a present a few years ago. Look for our next issue on 02-Jun-03. [ACE]
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.
