View Full Version : Word doc, clear all formatting.

:help: Hello all. My partner is an experienced word processor,but she would like to know if there is a tool or key combination for removeing the formatting of a word doc. It would need to remove tabs, bold, italics,etc.
I have found Reset character formatting but this does not remove the tabs from a word doc. My partner uses word 97 at work and home but I use XP.

Try these.
To remove all text formatting, select the area and press Ctrl + Spacebar. To remove paragraph formatting, use Ctrl + Q.

Hi, if its manually entered tabs (by using the tab key as you typed) then clearing tabs will not work. Instead, select all the text (Ctrl+A) then Edit|Replace and in the FindWhat box enter ^t and in the ReplaceWith box enter your replacement character (ie leave the ReplaceWith box blank or enter a single space etc) then click Replace All.
