Redoing an Object Browse

In other issues of WordTips you learn how you can use the Object Brower that is available in Word. (Hint: It is accessed by clicking on the small ball beneath the vertical scrollbar.) If you like to use the Object Browser to locate objects, you may be interested in a keyboard shortcut you can use to repeat a search.

Once you find an object using the Object Browser, you can click on the blue arrows at the bottom of the vertical scrollbar to find the previous or next object. You can also use Ctrl+PgUp to find the previous object of the same type, and Ctrl+PgDn to find the next one. In many ways, these keys are similar to using Shift+F4 to repeat the last Find operation.

The default object searched for by the Object Browser is a page. Thus, if you never use the Object Browser to select a different type of object, the Ctrl+PgUp and Ctrl+PgDn keys will jump to either the previous or next pages. This leads many people to assume that this is the purpose of these shortcut keys—to move from one page to the next. This is an incorrect assumption, as any time you use the Object Browser Word remembers how you are browsing and uses the shortcut keys for that purpose.
