Replacing special characters

In addition to searching for and replacing text, you can search for and replace Word's special characters, such as paragraph and tab marks.

How to replace text with a graphic or an object

Although the Find And Replace dialog box doesn't directly support replacing text with graphics or objects, you can easily perform this action using the Clipboard and the ^c wildcard.

Using wildcards

Word lets you refine your searches using wildcard characters and operators. The question mark and asterisk are wildcard characters that represent characters in the search text.
