Using Go To
Both the Navigation pane and the Find and Replace dialog box are non-modal or modeless . This means that you can
click in the text and edit the i le while the pane or dialog box is still on-screen, which is more handy than repeatedly
closing and reopening either the pane or the dialog box.
Using Go To
Word, Excel, and Publisher offer a Go To feature that enables you to navigate to different
locations, which can be handy when you’re working in a long document. To use Go To, you
can press Ctrl+G. The dialog box that appears varies and works differently in each of the
applications, so here’s an introduction for each:
Go To in Word: In Word, the Find and Replace dialog box appears with the Go
To tab selected. Make a selection in the Go to what list at the left, such as Page
or Bookmark, then give the detail about where to go in the text box or list that
appears at the right. For example, if you click Page, you would enter the page
number in the Enter page number text box, or if you clicked Bookmark, you could select
a bookmark from the Enter bookmark name drop-down list. After choosing your
settings, click Go To. In Word, Home ➪ Editing ➪ Find ➪ Go To also starts the process.
Go To in Excel: The Go To dialog box appears in Excel. Type a cell reference or range
name in the Reference box or select a named range in the Go to list, and then click
OK. Or, click the Special button in the Go To dialog box to open the Go To Special
dialog box, which you can use to select speciﬁ c items in the selected range, such as
Formulas or Blanks. After choosing what type of item to go to, click OK. In Excel,
Home ➪ Editing ➪ Find & Select ➪ Go To or Go To Special also starts the process.
Go To in Publisher: Publisher enables you to move between pages, so Go To won’t
be active if a publication only has one page. Starting Go To opens the Go To Page
dialog box. Enter the desired page number in the Go to page text box, and then
click OK. In Publisher, Home ➪ Editing ➪ Find ➪ Go To Page also opens the Go To
Page dialog box.
Typos have no place in professional business documents, whether delivered electronically or
in hard-copy form. You always want to put your best foot forward and make sure that your
ﬁ les are attractive, clear and easy to follow, and typo free.
By default, many of the Ofﬁ ce applications quietly check your spelling for you as you type.
If you see a telltale red squiggle appear underneath a word, that means that the
application thinks you’ve misspelled the word — according to the application’s own dictionary,
