Match case when searching: Perform the search based on uppercase and lowercase letters in the text you are looking for.

Match whole words only: Find only whole words, not text that is part of another word.

Example: You need to replace the word agreement with the word contract in the text of the document. In this case, the word agreement can be written with both lowercase and uppercase letters (for example, at the beginning of a sentence). Check the box Match case when replacing so that the word agreement with a lowercase letter is replaced by the word contract with a lowercase letter, and the word Agreement with a capital letter is replaced by the word Contract with a capital letter.
