Find (Ctrl-F) Default Setting

I do a lot of Find (Ctrl-F ) on specific fonts in my document. Each time I do I have to select the Type menu, then select Specific Codes , then select Font , then select the specific font.

How can I change the defaults, if not for all of these menus then at least for Type to be Specific Codes instead of Text ?

(WP9 and WP12)

RE: Find (Ctrl-F) Default Setting

You can't.  You can use a macro to set it as you like each time.  

Of course you can do one find and leave the dialog open while you do other things.  You can then do another find using the previous setup.

Once you do a find, you can use hot keys to do the same search forward or backward without even opening the dialog.
