Finding and Replacing Text
Figure 5-9:
All matching
text appears
in the
Navigation
Pane.
As you type, Word displays all matching text. So if you start typing he,
Word will find all text that matches “he,” such as “hello,” “helicopter,”
or “help.”
4. Click on any of the text displayed in the Navigation Pane.
Word highlights your chosen text in your document.
5. Click on the X icon that appears in the Search Document text box in
the Navigation pane.
Word clears the text you typed in Step 3.
Customizing text searching
If you just want to find a word or phrase, the ordinary Find command works,
but if Word finds too much irrelevant text, you might want to take time to
customize how Word searches for text. Follow these steps:
1. Click the Home tab.
2. Click the Find icon in the Editing group.
The Navigation Pane appears in the left side of the screen (refer to
Figure 5-8).
3. Click the Magnifying Glass icon in the Search Document text box in
the Navigation pane.
A pull-down menu appears, as shown in Figure 5-10.
