Searching Within a Document
To go to a particular search result, simply click the item in the Navigation pane. Note that
the other tabs work as they do with object searches, described earlier in this chapter. On
the left tab, each heading above each occurrence of the search text is highlighted, so you
can see at a glance which parts of the document contain the text. The center tab is filtered
so that it shows thumbnail images only of pages that include the search text.
As an alternative to clicking a search result, you can click the up or down arrow to the right
of the tabs to go to the previous or next occurrence of the search text.
INSIDE OUT Set find options
You can customize the way Navigation pane searches work by clicking the arrow at the
right end of the Search Document box and choosing Options. The Find Options dialog
box enables the use of wildcards (? for a single character, * for one or more characters)
and lets you narrow (Match Case or Find Whole Words Only, for example) or widen
(Sounds Like, Ignore Punctuation Characters, or Find All Word Forms, for example) your
Sounds Like looks for your search word and its homonyms (words that sound the same
but are spelled differently, such as bread and bred ). It’s great (grate?) for finding
commonly confused words such as there and their .
Find All Word Forms uses a lexicon of related terms to include in search results. For
example, with this option selected, a search for “buy” will find all occurrences of buy ,
buying , and bought .
Note that with some of these options selected, Word doesn’t begin searching until you
press Enter after entering your search text.
