[Word] Default Find option
Hey guys is there any way to change the default Find behavior in Word 2007 so it always searches the "Main Document" rather than the "Current Selection"?
Sometimes I need to perform multiple searches within the same document, and the first time I can just input my search string and just hit Enter. After that though I must manually select "Main Document" or I get a popup saying "Word has finished searching the selection. The search item was not found. Do you want to search the remainder of the document?"
I'm trying to limit clicking/mouse action here. Thanks.

I'm trying to replicate but I don't get current selection at all it just searches the document as default (Word 2010 though). Are you highlighting the document or parts of it first?

Cudni, that's the problem - Word highlights the found string, and for any subsequent searches it assumes I want to search within the highlighted selection. (which is extremely dumb IMO)
