Searching for text within a topic in desktop help

Describes how to search for specific text within a topic.

To search for a text string within a topic, carry out the following steps:

  1. Open the desired topic. You can do this by navigating the table of contents, by searching for the topic in the Index tab, or by using the full-text search.
  2. Click somewhere within the topic and press Ctrl- F.
  3. In the Find dialog box, specify the text and the search options, then press Enter or click Next.
If the search is successful, the Help viewer highlights the first occurrence of the text string. To continue searching for further occurrences, continue pressing Enter or clicking Next. Note that, if you have selected the Highlight all matches check box in the Find dialog box, all occurrences of the search string in the topic are highlighted concurrently.
