Using Find and Replace

The Find and Replace features are tools that you can’t do without. They enable you to search for a particular word, phrase, or format and replace it with something else. For example, suppose that your company’s new product was referred to as RatPackX during its development stage. Now that the product is getting close to its release date, the official name, Mouse Manager, needs to be printed on all product specification sheets and documentation. It’s your job to make the change. This is an ideal candidate for find-and-replace. Here’s what you do:

  1. Open the document you want to edit.

  2. Press either Ctrl+F or Ctrl+H to display the Find And Replace dialog box. (You can also open the Edit menu and choose Replace if you prefer.) Figure 5-4 shows the Find And Replace dialog box.

    Figure 5-4. The Find And Replace dialog box enables you to make changes quickly throughout your document.

  3. In the Find What box in the Find And Replace dialog box, type the word or phrase you’re looking for.

  4. In the Replace With box, type the word or phrase you want to replace it with.

  5. Click Replace All to replace all instances of the original word or phrase with the new entry.
