1. Can I Search and Replace for things other than words in MS Word?


1. Choose Replace from the Edit menu.
2. Click on More. At the bottom of the Find and Replace dialog box, you'll see a Format button and a Special button. The Format button allows you to replace formatting (e.g., one font for another, bold for italics); the Special button allows you to replace special characters (e.g., paragraph marks, note reference marks).

Also, you can use the contents of the Clipboard as the replacement. This is useful if you want to replace a short word or phrase with a longer phrase or paragraph. To use this feature, you must first create the replacement text somewhere, then copy it to the Clipboard. When you use the Special button as mentioned above, you'll see Clipboard Contents as one of the choices (or use ^c).
