Find All Nums and Caps will highlight numbers and words with capital letters. This makes search for addresses, names or years easier (Figure 9). When highlighting is done, it is easier to find potentially disclosive information and anonymise it. anonymization should be done carefully and only where needed to prevent unnecessary data loss. Precautions mentioned above should be taken when anonymising.
Figure 9: Using the Find All Nums and Caps macro
Reset all Nums and Caps resets the highlighting caused by the previous step. This function removes all highlighting in the text. This includes all other highlighting made before using the text anonymization helper tool.
