You can eliminate wasting time proofing a document looking for a particular phrase or word (i.e., if you opened a 120 page document and you were searching for something related to "Vitamin A"), by doing the following:
Hold down the CTRL key and "F" key simultaneously. In the upper-left of the screen page [below the tool bar] you will see a new datafield pop up. Type 'vitamin a" in the datafield and click on "Next" (located to the right). It will find the very first mention; then just click on "Next" to continue the search for every mention in the document.
It's amazing how often this comes in handy; and it's definitely a time saver! It will continue to advance to the next finding, until there aren't any; then it will return to the very first finding.

Thanks for the great tip. I am looking into going to computer school. I feel like I've just had my first lesson! Thanks again!
Aha, this would definitely come in handy if I were ever in the situation you described. I learned "global find and replace" years ago in a computer class, but that was on a pre-Windows computer. (Am I dating myself? lol!)
