make Spell Check and Find/Change operate in page order rather than chronological order of text box creation
Find/Change and Spell Check seem to function in a random way (they actually search through text boxes in the order in which the boxes were created in the document). In a large document a user can become very confused about how much of the document is searched, especially if he makes changes mid-search.
It would be much more user friendly if the functions would operate in a page by page order.

Yes, if someone has a solution to this problem I would love to know
YES YES YES! I agree. I have to find the first instance of an acronym so I can define it but I can't because ID takes me from page 3 to page 9 then back to page 2. Maddening!
I agree. When doing long documents of 400 pages, the bouncing around all over the document during spell check is a pain in the butt. Don't see why Adobe can't find a way to have the option of spell checking in page order. Would be a great improvement.
I've been searching and searching for a way to change this. It seems pretty obvious that the search should go in document page order. This is a huge frustration to me. Is there any way to fix this???
Very much like this. Hate to be "ported" around my document, with no actual reason. The user has no power to work with object-IDs, nor I want to tell my F&R-window "direction: by id".
