Of course, you can use it in text editors or word processors as well, but it will work reliably only within the current screen. It is sometimes useful, though, because it brings the cursor directly to the search result, no need to close the search window. However, I never use it in Word or editors.

So, it means that insert + control + f it is not a function to be used on word or text strings/documents?
So I should understand that insert + control + f it is to be used on dialogs, but not on text strings?

Quite simple, Pablo: there are many situations where there is no native search function (in Windows dialogues, for instance).
I don’t understand something here. For what reason FS is going to invest time and money developing a function like insert + control + F , if the native word function Control + F works better?
as far as I know, JAWS search (Insert+CTRL+F) in Word or all program windows except the web-like ones (browser, PDF) only searches for strings on the current screen. Therefore, CTRL+F works better there because by default, this function searches for the string in the entire document.
The following problem is happening on 3 different computers running Jaws 18 last release on windows 10, and word 2016 office 365.
When I have a word document opened, and I press insert + control + F to find a string. When I press enter to start the find function, 90% of the times jaws says, string not found.
However I know that that string is there so I try to use the word find function, pressing control + F, then I press enter.
Yes, using the find function on word, I am finding strings that jaws is not able to find.
What is happening here? Why the find function in jaws is not working consistently?
Thanks for all,
