    Find Formatted Text (Word 2000/SR-1)

    I can't figure this out, so I need to be enlightened!

    After I use Word to compare two documents, I want to search to the text (any text) formatted with strikethrough and also any text with double underlining so I can quickly see the changed wording. How is this done?

    Thanks for your help!

    If you display the Reviewing toolbar, you can use the Next and Previous buttons to quickly jump to strikethrough (deleted) and double underlined (inserted) text.

    Thanks, Hans! That works great!

    Just out of curiosity, can the same thing be done via the Find feature? I'm asking because I think there's something key about Find that I'm not understanding since it seems like I should be able to search to a font attribute applied to any text.

    The markings Word uses to indicate tracked changes are different from directly applied character formatting, it's done using smoke and mirrors. As far as I know, they can't be found using Edit | Find.

    Well, that would explain my confusion! Thank you very much, Hans!
