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.

 
 

Adam & Tonya Engst Honored in MacTech 25

Send Article to a Friend

Due no doubt in part to the votes cast by TidBITS and Take Control readers, we were pleased to see that not just Adam, but also Tonya, were included in the MacTech 25 list of influential people in the Macintosh technical community. Apart from its use of public voting, the MacTech 25 differs significantly from the MDJ Power 25 in honoring people outside Apple who influence the Macintosh world via their technical contributions. The end result thus included writers who explain technical topics or maintain sites deemed key to the technical community, system administrators who spread their knowledge through writing and speaking, and programmers who help other programmers.

MacTech chose not to rank the top vote getters, making for a flat list. Congratulations to everyone on the MacTech 25, which this year includes the following people (see the forthcoming August 2006 issue of MacTech for a full write-up of each person; if you don't currently subscribe, you can download a free PDF sampler of recent articles):
