Jump to next keyword instance

Postby ppx1 » Thu Sep 16, 2010 10:57 am

X1 nicely jumps into the first instance of the searched keyword in the document / email.

Is there a key shortcut or a button to jump to the next instance of the keyword in the preview pane? This is to avoid having to scroll down to see if the keyword is highlighted in another part of the document.

To expand on Kenward's response, you can scroll through highlighted hits and find the next occurrence of a found word using these steps:

1. Click inside the X1 preview pane
2. Use the plus (+) and minus (-) keys. The plus key will jump to the next highlighted hit. The minus key will jump to the previous highlighted hit.

You can also jump to new search terms in the current document being previewed. Click inside the X1 preview pane and then:

A. For Files/Documents, press CTRL+ALT+F on your keyboard to bring up the Windows search box. The search box will allow the viewer to jump to the new search term that you specify.

B. For all other items (Emails, Contacts, Calendar and Tasks), press CTRL+F on your keyboard to bring up the Windows search box. The search box will allow the viewer to jump to the new search term that you specify.

Thanks, the "+" tip is excellent. Actually typing "=" has the same result.

"-" does not do anything for me, neither does CTRL+F. Could you show a screenshot? Is it supposed to bring a pop up window or an integrated search field like in Adobe reader?

What version are you using? And what type of document are you previewing?

for me, it brings up the same box as is brought up in IE when you search on a page.

X1 ® Professional Client Version 6.7.1 (Build 4054ar) (Created: Wed Jun 30 14:28:40 PDT 2010) Using Windows 7 Entreprise 64 bits.

I use CTRL+F on powerpoint, excel, pdf, etc. This won't pop up any search window.

Adding to my initial accurate but perhaps terse response, you will find more on this in the Help file.

Unfortunately, X1 doesn't deem it necessary to index the help file so:

>>Search "keyboard"
>>Keyboard shortcuts

X1 Search 8.5.2 - Build 6001si (64-bit)
Windows 10 Pro 64-bit | Windows 10 Home 32-bit
