Navigation tool

The Navigation tool can be used to browse for document objects in a straight and convenient way.

To choose which object to search for, click the "Select browse object" button at the bottom of the vertical scrollbar of the document window:

You will find a detailed description of the object types involved further down this page.

When you have chosen an object of interest, you can use the related "Previous" and "Next" buttons to navigate to the closest instances of the chosen object in the backward or forward direction. These "Previous" and "Next" buttons are located right above and below the "Select browse object" button respectively:

The "Previous" button scans the document in the backward direction starting from the current caret position. The "Next" button scans the document in the forward direction starting from the current caret position. Alternatively, you could use the corresponding hot keys, CtrlPgUp for the "Previous" object, CtrlPgDn for the "Next" object. Each found object is automatically brought into view.


Now here are the various objects you might want to browse documents for using the Navigation tool:

Object type Description
Find

Select this "Find" object to search the document for the text or formatting currently specified in the "Find / Replace" dialog of Atlantis (CtrlF hot key).

When no text or formatting was previously specified in the "Find / Replace" dialog, clicking the "Previous" or "Next" buttons of the Navigation tool automatically invokes the "Find / Replace" dialog, an obvious suggestion to enter text or formatting to search for. When you have entered either text or formatting or both to search for, you can close the "Find / Replace" dialog and start browsing for the search items with the "Previous" and "Next" buttons of the Navigation tool, or the associated hot keys (CtrlPgUp and CtrlPgDn).
