    Search/Find Box (2003)

    I have been using Word for years and always hated the find dialog. Has anyone ever seen a word add-in that would provide a simple tool bar with a Search/Find box and perhaps some options like Up and Down?

    Re: Search/Find Box (2003)

    Welcome to Woody's Lounge!

    The attached zip file contains an add-in/template with an extremely primitive implementation of a Find toolbar. It has a text box and two buttons. After entering something in the text box, you *must* press Tab or Enter, if you click outside the box the changes are lost. You can then either tab to the desired button and press Enter, or click the desired button.
    The toolbar could easily be expanded with more options.
    If you unzip the file into your Word startup folder, the add-in will be loaded next time you start Word. If you trust installed add-ins and templates, you shouldn't get a macro warning.
    If you want to get rid of it, simply delete the add-in or move it out of the Word startup folder.
