Find tool in Word

When translating I use my own glossaries, which I started compiling a long time ago in Word files. I use the Find tool to look up words in my glossaries and to replace frequently occuring words in the text to be translated. The problem is the Find tool often, unaccountably, stops working, particularly when I have more than one Word file open. I then have to close all the Word documents to get the tool working again. Any ideas how to solve this problem please?

In case you use wildcard searches as well, this could be happening

I believe is does happen while using regular Find/Replace as well, and not only VBA/macros.
