    Selective Printing in Word (Windows 2002/ NT 4.0)

    I have a 50 page document that I have colour coded. Is there a way to print out say

    All the text w a blue font color?
    or
    All the text with a Gold Color?

    Thanks!

    One method - although formatting may be messy

    Use Find and tell it to look for Font with blue (Edit > Find > More > Format > Font > ...)
    Then click on the 'Highlight all items found in:" and click on the button that has renamed itself "Find all"

    The above will select all the blue text
    Now simply click file > print and print the selection using the "Page Range" option (or cut and paste it to a place to format it better)

    Do you need the correct page numbers to show on the printout? If not, you could use a few Find|Replace operations to hide all the text you don't want to print. The reason it's more than one step is you cannot seem to search for Font Color NOT Blue (at least in Word 2000). So instead, something like:

    Find: Font Color Blue
    Replace: Font Face Comics Sans

    Find: Font Face (the rest of the document)
    Replace: Font Hidden

    Find: Font Face Comics Sans
    Replace: Font Face (whatever you had)

    Print

    Undo, Undo, Undo until back to baseline, then do the other color.
