    Replace Italics (Word XP)

    Morning All (and go the Aussie swimmers!).

    I have a bunch of italics in a document that I would like to change from black text to red text - short of re-typing it (yuk), is there a global replace command that I can use that will do this?

    In the Edit | Replace... dialog, select More, then, with the insertion point in the 'Find what' box, click Format, then Font..., then select Italic in the 'Font style' box and click OK to return to the Replace dialog. (If you want to replace only black Italic text, you must also select black as 'Font color')
    Next, place the insertion point in the 'Replace with' box, click Format, then Font..., leave the 'Font style' box unchanged, and select Red as 'Font color'. Click OK to return to the Replace dialog.
    Click 'Replace all'.

    Thx HansV - I tried it with wildcards ('*') and managed to replace all of my italics with little red *s! Luckly I had saved the doc before I did that [phew]

    Edit | Undo also works if you mess up things with Find/Replace <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>
