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.

 
 

TidBITS Is Hiring... in Ithaca

Send Article to a Friend

After a summer of feeling utterly overwhelmed despite our best attempts to work more efficiently and use the Getting Things Done techniques, we've decided that the most effective way to get things done is to hire other people to do them. Plus, it's cheaper and safer than messing about with the time-space continuum.

We're currently hiring for two contract positions: a technology writer to help with TidBITS and Take Control research, fact-checking, and writing; and a personal assistant to handle necessary tasks that aren't a good use of time for Tonya or me. These positions will involve regular collaboration and meetings in person, so applicants must be located in Ithaca, NY.

For more information about the positions, see our Jobs page.
