When you give commands that quote from your text (e.g. “Select <xyz>” to select and format a specific word in your document), Dragon numbers all matching instances, so you can affect multiple instances at once or disambiguate. Dragon 12 now includes an option to turn this feature off if you prefer, so that your command directly applies to the nearest match.
