Searching with the Traditional Find and Replace Dialog Box
Finding and
Replacing Text
Ignore white-space characters. When turned on, this checkbox tells Word to
ignore spaces, tabs, paragraph marks, and other nonprinting characters in its
search, so a search for “rundown” would include “run down” in the results.
Turn on the checkbox of any option you want to apply to your search. If you want
your future searches to retain these options, click Set As Default. To use the settings
just for this session, click OK.
