    Selecting by Shading (Win2000; Word 2002)

    I've inherited documents wherein the original author chose to use shading to distinguish revised text and strikethrough on deleted text (apparently hightlighting was unknown to the author). The documents have been approved for final publication. Is there a way to select the shaded text and undo the shading as easily as selecting and undoing highlighting? The documents are diverse enough that I'm leary of developing a macro.

    All suggestions greatly appreciated and gratefully received.

    If you want to remove ALL shading, just select the entire document (Ctrl+A), select Format/Borders and Shading..., Shading tab, select No Fill (or something similar, I'm using another language version), and click OK. If you want to do this selectively, select part of the document instead of the entire document.

    Thanks, Han. Should have thought of that myself. Analysis paralysis, I guess.
