Word 2010 Command Finder "We’ve become really frustrated with finding a feature in Word, especially in the command list. So we’ve done something about it with the new online Command Finder for Word 2010"

Useful tool! One thing I found frustrating - "now searching all 1,752 commands listed by Word 2010..." takes several seconds, like it is 1,752,000 commands or even more. Interesting – what database they are using? Access can do this much faster :)
