How to read a document containing highlights?

Sounds simple. Just scroll down and read the highlighted text. Yes – that works.

But you have to keep scrolling to find the next highlight. It may be one page away or 24 pages away… not very efficient!

Here is the right way.

Make sure you have a document which contains many areas highlighted.

Press SNAGHTML12a1dc69 to open the Find Replace dialog

Click on the Find tab click inside the Find What textbox and click on More button…

Now we want to move to the next highlight

Press   SNAGHTML12a704e8  to move to next highlight

By the way, this shortcut works for anything you have just FOUND using the Find dialog.
