Subject: R. Hollander's request of WP 5.1 help

R. Hollander asks for help with WP's footnotes. Footnotes can be
searched and d updated (search and replaced) through an extended search.
Simply press "HOME" before doing the search or replace (F2 or Alt-F2).
I've the process very useful and in a macro it works beautifully Randy

Thanks to all for straightening me out about global searching in WP,
which seems to work just fine in WP 4.2 (some thought 5.0 was necess.).
Not a reader of manuals, I had relied on other users who had said one
could not do such searches in WP. Mea culpa. BobH

Subject: Searching WP footnotes and disaster

While in the latter stages of revising a book length manuscript a year
ago I decided to do a global search-replace in WP that would include the
footnotes using HOME first as several writers described. The result as
I remember it was a disaster with WP going into convulsions. I
determined that this was a glitch in a version of 5.0 (I think).
Perhaps others have had better experiences. Do be warned that as you
ask the program to do more complicated things on long files it may break
down. Have others had similar experiences with WP?
