    Find and replace (Word 2003)

    Me again!

    I am tediously trying to remove paragraph markers as show in the graphic attached. Is there a way to search and replace to remove these?

    I have a million to remove and I am sure to go mad if I continue this manually!

    Re: Find and replace (Word 2003)

    The code for a paragraph mark in the Find and Replace dialog is ^p.
    But if you use wildcards, you need to search for ^13.

    See Re: Find/Replace Special Characters (Word) for more info.

    Thanks for this fantastic resource Hans.

    I am not just looking for paragaph markers though. This is the combination of the little circle thingy AND the paragraph marker. I dont know what the little circle thing is??

    Re: Find and replace (Word 2003)

    The "little circle thing" looks like a non-breaking space. The code for that is ^s, so to search for a non-breaking space followed by a paragraph mark, you'd enter ^s^p in the 'Find what' box.

    If there can be multiple spaces (normal or non-breaking), you can use ^w instead of ^s.
