Using Find/Change

I'm old enough that I remember manually searching through all the text in a document for one word and replacing it with another all by eye, just hoping I didn't miss one instance and all I can say is thank goodness for InDesign's Find/Change feature which let's me do all of it, with a single click. It never misses a beat. To use Find/Change, I'll go to the Edit menu and choose Fine/Change or press Command+F or Ctrl+F on Windows, up comes the Find/Change dialog box which I almost always move off to this side, so that I can see more of my document page and see what it actually finds.

Now in this case my Editor has told me that in this document, I have a couple of instances of the word Californios, so I'll type that in the Find What. I want to find that Californios, but it should be the word Californians. I don't even know where Californios came from. Californians, there we go. So now I'm going to search for the word Californios and replace it with Californians...
