This Microsoft Word Help & Microsoft Word Tips page serves as a place to park "Find-It."

A Word template add-in, "Find-It" was one of my first published add-ins and has since been supplanted by my VBA Find & Replace addin.

Still some people find it useful so it has its place here.

Developed in Word 2003, "Find-It" includes a simple toolbar user interface.  Fully funcitonal with Word 2007 and 2010 the toolbar propagates on the Ribbon Add-Ins tab.

Word 2007-2010

Using the toolbar "Controller" command, the primary user interface is displayed.  Using the controller, the user defines the scope and function of the add-in processes.
