ctrl+f gets you to find words, and a simple enter brings you to the next word. What hotkey takes you to the previous word?
You can also use Ctrl+PgUp and Ctrl+PgDn for this, with some setup.
Below the vertical scroll bar, there are three buttons: an upward-pointing double arrow, a circle, and a downward-pointing double arrow. When you have performed a search operation, the double arrows become blue. This means that, in this case, when the caret is in the document text, you can press Ctrl+PgUp and Ctrl+PgDn to go to the previous and the next match, respectively.
You can also click the circle button to let the double-arrow buttons, and the hotkeys, go between other things than search matches.
In Office 2016, I miss the Ctrl+PgUp and Ctrl+PgDn. Found the following work around:
- Use the Find feature as normal (Ctrl+F), specifying what I want to search for and then looking for the first occurrence of the string.
- When the first occurrence is displayed, I press the Esc key (or click on Cancel).
- To find the next occurrence, I press Shift+F4.
This works fine for me now. But am still searching for a way to go on the reverse direction, like Ctrl+PgUp.
