    I use find and replace (CTRL-F) to find words in the text of my database.
    Sometimes I move too fast and go past the entry I want. Unlike most 'find'
    mechanisms, there is not a 'back' or 'previous' to go back one record - I
    must go all the way around the circle of hits to get back to the one I
    wanted. Does anyone know a keyboard shortcut or other method for going
    'back' one record when perusing find results? Thanks!

    I often do the same thing. Patience is the only cure that I've found.
