George,

For the case that David mentions your approach is the correct one -- it's
simple and, more importantly, it gets the job done.

At the moment, the only way generally to remove codes without DBT attempting
to maintain pairings is to use Search/Replace while in coded view.  But that
is tough to manage -- certainly trickier than just setting an option and
using delete, backspace, or what-have-you.

I'll keep the suggestion in mind for a future revision.

Hi David,

Yes.  Highlight the end of the first and beginning of the second paragraph.
Go to the Layout menu, Join Styles.

Although in an ideal world (hint, hint, Peter) it would be nice to have an
advanced user option to remove just one of a pair of tags.

George.

Peter

I wonder if you know of a way round the following problem.

The codes <para.> and </para.> are linked. If one is deleted the other
automatically deletes itself. This means that if you attempt to merge two
paragraphs together by pressing [delete] [delete] [space] at the start of
the second paragraph then both paragraphs loose their codes and the combined
paragraph is no longer indented at its start.
