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.

More GarageBand Content and Summer Sale -- Jeff Tolbert, the author of our two Take Control ebooks about GarageBand, is seemingly inexhaustible when it comes to telling people about his favorite music-making program from Apple. After he finished updating his ebooks to cover GarageBand 2, he went on to write additional articles about GarageBand for various Web sites based on his experience writing the ebooks. He does a great job with the right-brain/left-brain work of explaining how to work creatively in a digital environment, so those of you who want to keep your creativity fresh while making tunes in GarageBand should be sure to check out his other pieces.
