Hey guys, I have a document that contains the word "ultimate" throughout it. I want to change this word to something else, but do not want to have to select every instance of the word and delete it individually. I know I can use the writer's "search" function to search for, cycle through and change each individual instance of the word, but am just wondering how to select every instance of the word at once. That way, I could just type "ultimate" in the search bar, select all instances of the word "ultimate", press delete, then type another word in it's place, which would take far less time than selecting, deleting and replacing each individual instance of it.

This should be the case 'Edit'>'Find & Replace...' with 'Replace All' is made for.
