Chapter 3. Working with Word > Editing: Beyond the Basics

Editing: Beyond the Basics

As mentioned previously, the basic editing techniques were discussed in Chapter 1. In this section, you'll learn to search for and replace text, use Office's AutoText feature to automatically enter text for you, and use smart buttons to speed common editing and formatting tasks.

Finding and replacing text

You can instruct Word to search for and optionally replace words or phrases. For example, if you can't remember the page on which you referred to Apple's annual report, you could perform a Find on the phrase “annual report.” Or suppose your company has recently changed its name from Bob's Plumbing to Widgets Inc. Using the Replace command, you can replace every instance of the old name with the new one. Refer to Table 3.3 (on the next page) for a list of special Find options.
