Finding and replacing text

To call Microsoft Word's Find and Replace dialog box:

Place the cursor into the pane in which you want to search for text and press Ctrl+F,or click the Find ic_find button in the Standard toolbar.


For details on Microsoft Word's find and replace functionality please consult the relevant Microsoft Word help pages.


Reloading documents

You can always undo all changes you have made to a document since you last saved it, and reload the file into DiffDog. A warning message will be displayed if you are about to lose changes.

2.If the file has changed since you last saved it, a warning message is displayed.


3.Click Yes if you want to reload, or No if you want to cancel the operation.
