    Remove text portion in doc. (Word All)

    Hi,

    I have a lot of text that contains html tags. I want to remove all the italics info from the document that occurs between the <!t>[ and ]<!/t> tags. I am trying to use the replace command in Word and finding <!t>[*]<!/t>, but word is not finding anything, even if I have the wildcard checkbox checked. Any ideas how I can find and replace these tagged values?

    TX
    Regards,
    Rudi

    Try using a search string of
    <code>*</code>

    You need to use in front of the < etc to tell word that you are really searching for the < character, otherwise it is the code for beginning of word.

    Re: Remove text portion in doc. (Word All)

    While we are on this subject, is it possible to remove every second paragraph mark? I have sentences where I have entered to create a new line, then entered a second time to create a space between the text and then the next line of text. I want to remove the space between each line of text. ie: only one enter mark so all the sentences are under each other without an extra space between them.

    Any ideas of how to use Find / Replace for this?
    Regards,
    Rudi
