Ever wonder about that little circle in the bottom-right corner of your screen below the scrollbar? It's the Browse by Object button, and it gives you a powerful way of zipping through your document. You can jump from page to page, picture to picture, table to table, footnote to footnote, or to a particular location. By default, the double-arrows above and below the circle jump up or down one full page at a time. You can also see that there's a keyboard command Ctrl+Page Down. That will do the same thing. When I click on the circle or press Ctrl+Alt+Home, a little window pops up asking how you want to scan your document.
The first one, Go To, opens up a dialog box where you can search for a specific section, line, bookmark, comment or a number of different markers. We'll cover this box extensively later in this chapter. For now, I'm going to click on Bookmark and I'm going to drop this down and choose nondisclosure, and go to it, and then I'll click Close. I'm going to change that slash mark to an And. Now, I'll click on the dot again, and I'll go to Find. I'm going to do a search for wage or salary. Now, I could use Find Next, and use this dialog box to scroll through, but once I've chosen it, I can now also use the Down and Up arrows to scroll through those locations.
I'm going to change this one to And as well. Now, when I go back to Browse by Object again, let's take a look at Browse by Edits. This is one of my most used tools. Browse by Edits will scroll you through the last places where your cursor has been in your document, so that allows you to go through the locations where you've made changes. So, if you've been working one place and you want to go back to where you were, you can just click on the dot, click on Browse by Edit, and then click the up-arrow and it will take you right back again. The next option in the window is Browse by Heading. This will scroll you through all your Heading 1, Heading 2, Heading 3 formats.
Browse by Graphic will jump you through all of the pictures and images in your document. Browse by Table will scroll you through all of your tables. Field will move you between fields in a form. Endnote will jump you from endnote to endnote and Footnote will jump you from footnote to footnote. Here we're on footnote number 4. When I scroll up, it will take us to 3, footnote number 2, footnote number 1. Comment will move you between your reviewer's comments. Section will take you from section break to section break, and Page, the default, navigates you to the first line of each page.
As you can see, the Browse Object button is a powerful method for scanning your document, moving between objects of the same type.
