Find Selection

Word
This command is part of TransTools+, a new set of plug-ins for professional translators, editors, copyeditors and DTP specialists.

Overview

During editing of Microsoft Word documents, you often need to scroll to other parts of the same document in order to look something up, and then go back to the editing location or selection. This is done by pressing any arrow key. However, this changes the current editing location / selection and you need to return to it manually in order to resume editing from the previous location. Also, even if the current editing location / selection is displayed on the screen, it may be difficult to find it because of font size, color, etc.

Find Selection command makes it easy to find the current editing location / selection in a Microsoft Word document. It takes you to the current selection within the active document and, if the selection is too small to notice, also flashes the selection. At the same time, the selection does not change so you can immediately resume editing.

How to use Find Selection command

To find the current editing location (selection), click Find Selection button on TransTools+ ribbon:
