    Default Word's Wildcard Search

    I am a crossword addict and am hoping to get some clarification on word 2013 & wildcard usage.

    In previous versions of word i simply accessed the find and replace dialogue box, checked the wildcard (?) checkbox and entered a search string. i recently searched for ?ix, which didnít find any results using this method; but when i did the same search using ^$ix (using the special drop-down box) it found words.

    Can someone clarify why the use wildcards option in the find and replace dialogue box is worthless or included at all, when half the time it doesnít find the word which definitely is somewhere in the document.

    Thanks in advance.
