The Search menu contains commands that let you search through a document either for text that you specify, or other instances of the current text selection. It also lets you replace one text pattern with another.
|Type||To search for|
|@n||Carriage return (end of paragraph).|
|@v||Line feed (forced new line).|
Find same (Shift-F4) finds the next occurrence of the search string.
Replace same (Ctrl-F4) finds and replaces the next occurrence of the search string.
Find selection uses the current selection as the search pattern (limited to the first 255 characters).
Desktop Thesaurus from Beebug Limited is supported.
When Desktop Thesaurus is on the icon bar you can use Find synonym (Ctrl-Q).
Refer to the section of the Desktop Thesaurus manual entitled Exchanging data with other applications. You can use EasiWriter in the way described for Ovation.
Bookmarks are a convenient way of marking, by name, a position in the document. This name is included in the Search menu - choosing it returns the caret to that part of the document.
If a selection was made before choosing Add bookmark this will become the name of the bookmark. Edit the name if required.
If no name is supplied an Untitled bookmark is created. There can only be one untitled bookmark in a document at any one time, so that the existing bookmark is removed when a second untitled bookmark is created. This is intended to allow a quick way of returning to the 'working point' of a document, without having to worry about naming and removing old bookmarks.
Removes the selected bookmark from the Search menu.
The list of currently defined bookmarks appears at the bottom of the Search menu.
