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.

We can't be the only ones asking ourselves: is it really November already? We've had a busy year, and as we push toward the end of 2008 and prepare for Macworld Expo in January, we're going to recuperate next week and celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday in the United States.

We won't be asleep the entire time, of course - we just can't help ourselves. We'll no doubt continue to post to the TidBITS Web site. Check back at the site or subscribe to the our RSS feed or Twitter stream to keep up with everything we're writing.
