In MS Word, it is easy to select all occurrences of a word (or any string for that matter) :

  1. Open the Find and Replace interface (Ctrl + H → find)
  2. Enter the string you are looking for (and select options if applicable, e.g. matching case)
  3. Click on Find InCurrent selection / Main Document. This selects all occurrences of the string.
  4. Close Find and Replace. You can now do whatever you want with your selection, for instance make all instances of your chosen word bold. (Word does not have multiple cursors, which would be incredible)

How can I do the same within Google Docs ?

  • Hi. Google Docs has the same feature (Find and Replace - CTRL + H). Have you tried it?
