If you use fields in your documents, there may be times when you want to select the fields quickly. Word provides a way you can do this using two handy shortcut keys:
When you reach the last field in the document (if moving forward), pressing F11 again does not cycle around to the first field in the file. Similarly, if you are moving backward and reach the first field in the document, Shift+F11 won't cycle to the end of the document.
