WORD 2013 - Navigation Pane vs. Old-School FIND dialog

Hello,

In my previous experience with Word (2007 and back), pressing CTRL-F brought up the FIND dialog box. Now, it brings up the Navigation pane. While the later can be useful (e.g. displaying multiple 'hits' on the text I'm searching) , there are time's I'd prefer the old school method.

For what it's worth, when I click on FIND in the upper right corner (or choose find from its dropdown menu) I get the Navigation pane. If I choose ADVANCED FIND, I get the old school dialog.
WORD Find on Ribbon
So,
1. Is there a way to reconfigure Word to bring up the old-school Find dialog?

2. If I do so, then is there still a way for me to bring up the Navigation pane manually?

Thanks,
Steve

1. yes... you can edit the shortcut command by going to File → Options → Customize Ribbon; then click on the "keyboard shortcuts: Customize" button, select "Home Tab" on left, then select "EditFind" on right.  click the box for "assign new shortcut key" then press Ctrl + F, and click assign.

2. to access navigation pane, select view tab on ribbon, then under "Show" → Navigation pane

Thank you, Trenton. That worked.

Btw, is it expected behavior that if I activate the navigation pane, that if I exit WORD and go back in that it will still be visible?

yeah, it's like the document map on 2003... turning it on or off gets saved to the normal.dot template and persists across opening and closing word.
