Default Search result in word

Hi,



I have a word document that does not contain the wording "ABC". But strange is that when I tried to do a ctrl+F, there is a search result but when I clicked on the search result, it does not point to any word containing "ABC".

I select show "AllMarkup" and the issue still exist. Not sure if there is some hidden text?

Thanks.

Without actually seeing the document in question, it can be difficult for anyone to diagnose the issue. Can you attach a document to a post with some representative data (delete anything sensitive)? You do this via the paperclip symbol on the 'Go Advanced' tab at the bottom of this screen.

The found text could be in a header or footer which is not visible for some reason (for example, the text could be in an even page footer in a section which consists of only an odd page).
