    A double-take moment

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Iron_Seitz, Jul 14, 2008.

    Ha. I just had to share this with someone: I'm writing a book on crime, 42,000 words so far. Anyway, I just ctrl+f searched the word "steal," and guess what? I haven't used it at all thus far.

    I'm not sure whether that's a word-choice accomplishment or a precursor to doom. Or maybe it's just really late right now and I'm finding completely mundane occurrences hilarious. Who knows?

    that's awesome. I wonder what would happen if you did that to a word like "a"

    lol, emily, you're so cute! :) You hold down the Ctrl key and push F at the same time. This brings up a little window to "find" certain words or phrases in your document.

    I wish I had been informed about this feature sooner. You would think that we would discuss this in "computer class" where all we used was word. *sighs sarcastically*

    Yep! Push it and then type in a random word...like "the" or something. It should go down the page and highlight every "the" there is.
