Word Feature: Navigation Pane

The new Navigation Pane in Office 2010 replaces Office 2007's Document Map. In addition to navigating your document by clicking page thumbnails and text headings in the Navigation Pane, you can use the pane to perform searches. To find a particular text string, you type the text into the box at the top of the pane. As you type, Word finds every matching instance of the text and highlights it in gold. To go to a particular match, click the pane's Results tab and then click the desired instance (see Figure 9).

Figure 9 To see the results of a text search, you can scroll through the document to view the highlighted instances, or click the Results tab in the Navigation Pane to view each match in context.

Integrating text search capability into the Navigation Pane isn't the only big change. By clicking the down arrow beside the magnifying glass (see Figure 10), you can also locate all embedded images, tables, equations, or footnotes and endnotes.

If you want to take advantage of the advanced features of the Find and Replace dialog box from Word 2007 and earlier, it's still around. To open it, choose Find > Replace, or choose Go To from the drop-down menu in the Search Document box (refer to Figure 10). Or you can switch to the Home tab, click the Find icon in the Editing group, and choose Go To.
