Default find a word

Hi.
In the link below I found a script called Finder. It is very useful to me. The only problem is that after a word search, it has to be closed in order to get back to work on the document. Does anyone know of another script that allows you to continue working on the document while looking at the search results?
the link:


The Macro Zone
Finder.zip

thanks.

This looks like a very old macro from Jay, however it is easy enough to adapt to make it do what you want. Open the template for editing and change the line in the Module 'Finder'

Code:
dlg.Show
to
Code:
dlg.Show vbModeless
and it will remain on screen and allow you to edit the document.

I have attached an updated version to include that change which includes a ribbon button on the Home tab.
