Word: Jumping to next table, graphic, or fieldFebruary 1, 2010
You can use the F5 function key in Word 2003 or 2007 to open the Go To tab on the Find and Replace window, then go to the next table, figure etc. But there’s a quicker way to jump from one object to the next.
Down in the far right corner of Word, below the vertical scroll bar, is a funny little button (the Select Browse Object button) that has double-headed up and down arrows immediately above and below it. When you first open a Word document, these arrows are black.
- Click the round Select Browse Object button between the double-headed arrows. The object browse options display.
- To browse:
- Tables: Click the table icon .
- Graphics: Click the image icon .
- Fields: Click the field icon .
- Once you’ve selected the type of object (table, graphic, field etc.), click one of the double-headed arrows to jump to the next object (click the up arrow to jump to objects earlier in the document; click the down arrow to jump to objects later in the document).
If you look carefully, once you’ve made your choice, the double-headed arrow changes to blue:
Note: Your object selection stays the same for the open document (unless you change it), so you can use it at any time. It resets to ‘nothing selected’ when you close the document.
