Select multiple rows in MS Word according to some matching criteria
Posted on 2013-05-23
Is there a way to select multiple rows in MS Word (2010) according to some matching criteria?
For example, suppose you have a lengthy Word doc in which you have no defined styles. Also, suppose that scattered throughout the document are multiple paragraphs which are comprised only of the phrase:
"Following is the description:"
And finally, suppose that you want to modify each of these paragraphs in some fashion (i.e. change the font, decrease the indent, etc.). I'm used to working in Excel where making changes of that type can easily be accomplished using "Find All."
Is there a way to "Find All" in Word or is there some workaround to accomplish the same goal so that changes such as the one described above can be made in a single step?
