If you are working on a document that lots and lots of heavy formatting, and you want to get rid of the formatting and start from scratch, there is an easy fix for you.
Follow the steps below to learn how:
- Highlight your text selection, whether it be a paragraph or the entire document.
- Cut or copy the selection to the Office clipboard.
- Open the Notepad by clicking on Start | Programs | Accessories | Notepad.
- Paste the text you previously copied to the Clipboard.
The Notepad can only work with unformatted text and so all formatting for your text selection is removed. You can now copy your text back to the Clipboard and paste it back into an MS Word document.
