Finding Formats

We all know how to find words and phrases in a document: but have you ever wanted to find all items in a document that are underlined, for example? Or a particular word, but only when it is not in bold? It turns out you can do that easily in Word. I needed to track down all words in italics today, to check that usage matched my style guide, and it was surprisingly easy. If you want to know how to do it then there's a quick way here, and more options here. It's a handy tip for finding instances of formatting in long documents, particularly for enhancing consistency.
