Find Word

Find Word


The Find Word dialog box allows you to search for a specific word in the dictionary while in the Dictionary Editor. This is usually much faster than looking through the dictionary manually, since the dictionary is not presented in alphabetical order.

To find a word, type in the word and then press Enter or click on the Find button. The mouse cursor will change to an hourglass while the dictionary editor searches for the word. If the word is found in the dictionary, the highlight will be placed on it, otherwise, the highlight will be placed near where the word would be if it were in the dictionary. Note that searching for a word in a large dictionary can take some time.

Tip: To find a macro, type in the macro code. Find does not search for macro expansions.

To leave this dialog without looking for a word, click the Cancel button.
