Hi,

Is there a way in WORD 2007 to final all specific words in a document (e.g. 'Turtle') and highlight the word yellow each time this word appears in an automated/menu driven rather than having to 'Find' it each time?

Thank you

You could do it this way if there are not too many words to highlight - http://www.ehow.com/how_2070018_highlight-microsoft-word.html

There's also a way to create a short cut - http://www.techtalkz.com/microsoft-office/66029-there-keyboard-shortcut-highlighting.html


Highlight multiple sections of text by first selecting the highlight icon without selecting any text. To highlight, drag the cursor over the text you wish to highlight. Click on the highlight icon again to exit highlighting mode or hit the "Esc" key on your keyboard.

Set the highlight colour to yellow. Open the Find and Replace dialogue (Ctrl+H).

Type the word in the Find box. Click on the Replace box. Press the More button if necessary and click on the Format button. Select Highlight, and then Replace All.
