Run complex searches in Word confidently and efficiently with AuthorTec Find’n Highlight

Word’s Find function is good, but limited.

When you need to search through a large document for a list of words or phrases, you must search for one item at a time. There’s no way to distinguish one set of found items from another. Moving back and forth to edit can be challenging to do efficiently. There’s no way to save a list of words and phrases you regularly search for.

The bottom line is that when it comes to doing complex searches, Word’s functionality falls short.

AuthorTec Find’n Highlight makes complex searches possible and easy to do.

With AuthorTec Find'n Highlight you can:

Not sure why you’d want to search for interjections or prepositions?

Did you know that “uh, er, um” are interjections. You might want to find those.

As for prepositions, while there are only about 150 of them, their job is to show the relationship between a noun or pronoun and some other word. So, you might want to make sure the correct prepositions are in use.

Luckily, AuthorTec Find’n Highlight will help you with that.
