Edit Find Command Jumps Between First Two Words of Paragraph
Article ID: Q106073
In Word 6.0 for Windows, when you use the Find or Replace command to find a style, Word "toggles" between the first and second word of the first paragraph formatted with that style.
This problem occurs when you choose Find or Replace from the Edit menu, clear the Find What box, select Find Whole Words Only, and specify style formatting as the search criteria. When you choose the Find Next button, Word selects the first word in the first paragraph with the specified style. Choose the Find Next button again, and Word selects the second word in that paragraph. Choose the Find Next button a third time, and Word selects the first word in the first paragraph again. Choosing the Find Next button causes Word to switch back and forth between these two words. Word does not find subsequent paragraphs formatted with the specified style.
This does not happen if there is text in the Find What box.
