    Need help Finding (Word 2K and >)

    <img src=/S/hello.gif border=0 alt=hello width=25 height=29> Loungers

    Under the Find dialog, there is a <font color=blue> FORMAT </font color=blue> button. You may need to press the <font color=blue> MORE </font color=blue> button to see it.

    This button, or maybe I should call it a dropdown list ,has some neat stuff in it, like Font, Style, Highlights... and I am wondering if I can use this to determine if I have more than one font in my document.

    I tried using Font, to check if there is anything other than Arial font, but it did not seem to work. I guess maybe there is no other font, and my document is some 200+ pages so scrolling is not something I can do easily.

    My question is, do I need any add-ins to make this look for fonts, or does it look for what you are looking for, say a string of Xs in a particular font?

    Thanks for any explanations.

    Will the Macros8.dot template (or is there an equivalent built-in template) work with W2K and higher? I use this template with Word 97, and the SuperDocStatistics option provided by the template includes a list of all Fonts used in a document.

    I am running MS-Word 2000 on my laptop, and I searched for <font color=blue>Macros8.dot </font color=blue> and did not come up with anything.

    I will go find it and download it and see how it works.

    I checked the MSN KB, and Word 2K should come with a Macros9.dot, but it looks as though the SuperDocStatistics feature is not included in Macros9.dot.

    Hi Wassim:
    You can, but I'm not sure that's very efficient. It's probably better to use a macro to list the fonts in the document (I'm sure there were some in this Lounge) . The purpose of the Format box is to limit what you are looking for (& also in the replace box). You can look for all the Arial text, or TNR, etc.. It's especially helpful if you've used styles for everything in your document. If you have a document which contains subroutine & functions text & you wish to find them, you can search for MacroText style, if that's what you've used.
    Cheers,

    I got a copy of the macros, and I am looking into them to see what I can find useful.

    Thanks for the reply.
