Re: reexplaining Outlook07 and finding next text stream



Unfortunately There's no edit menu in Outlook 2007 so those common-sense
easy-to-use features are buried and apparently not utilized.

Ctrl+Shift+F now brings up the find dialog as I described before, with the
necessary expedient to use the Find Next button (Alt+F) to search again.

Ed's suggestion of F4 and Shift+F4 works perfectly, and is also used as
find/findNext in Excel and Word, so at least MS has become a bit more
consistent across their Office platform.

Have you checked the edit menu? I realize the find next function has either
changed or been lost since Outlook 2003, which I'm still using, but I see in
this edit menu the shortcuts for find and find next, along with ways you can
delimit searches.

Subject: reexplaining Outlook07 and finding next text stream

HI guys: Thanks for such great ideas on searching for next stream in
Outlook07! But let me reexplain how I use it hoping more ideas might come:
Suppose in a certain email I'd like to skip article via article or section
via section; each article or section is separated via a string of dashes,
asteris, number signs or other symbols. In Outlook Express I used to invoke
the Jaws Find dialogue via Insert+Control+f, set the dialogue to search for
the determined string, being safe to press Escape on finding the first
occurrence. When reading the section and wanting to go to the next one, I'd

do Insert+f3 and without having to reinvoke the Search command it'd put me
on the next occurrence of the string, thus being able to jump to the next
article or section without having to reenter the Find dialogue.

OK I'm wanting to accomplish the same in Outlook07 emails: I do
Insert+Control+f to invoke Outlook07's Find and search for the string
Insert+Control+once I
know what it uses to separate articles or sections; I read the first article
or section, and wanting to search for the next occurrence, I have to reenter
the Find dialogue with Insert+Control+f and do Enter on next; logic would
have it that via the Control+page up or page down like in Word, it'll find
the next occurrence, thus making it easier to read; yes sighted people can
click on the ribbon and click on the Find Next icon, but how would we do
this same task as Jaws users?

So my question is there another way to accomplish this task as I used to do
before with Outlook Express? Hope now we're on the same track having
explained in more detail my situation.

Thanks in advanced for any other great ideas! Lists like these really help a
lot to be able to use more efficiently our technologies!
