HOW TO USE THE FIND AND REPLACE OPTION IN PAGEMAKER 7.0

FIND AND REPLACE OPTION IN PAGE MAKER 7.0


In PageMaker 7.0, the Find and Change option is used to search or replace any text. And this work is done in the edit story view, so we will first know what the story editor is?


What are story editors?


Story Editor in PageMaker is a text-only view where you can edit text quickly and easily because PageMaker does not need to display graphics or refined formatting, and instead of spreading the story across different pages all in one place. Occur on.


To edit the text in a format that looks like a word processor, the Story Editor displays all the text in a single page for easy correction, even if the story spans multiple pages in your document. A scroll bar to the right of the text allows you to scroll through the text block. The spell checker and find and replace commands are only available within the story editor.


Because the Story Editor does not display all text enhancements, editing and typing here are faster than in the text layout mode. Some functions in PageMaker can only be performed in the view of a story editor, such as checking the spelling grammar, finding and replacing text.


How to open Story Editor


  • Click on the block of text you want to improve.
  • From the Edit menu, select Story Editor
  • The text of the entire story will now appear in the story editor.

MOUSE OPTIONS: TO ACCESS THE STORY EDITOR WITH THE POINTER TOOL, TRIPLE-CLICK IN THE TEXT BLOCK.
