Hi you all, I am just curious. I have Word 2003 yep am behind the times, and the way I remove underlining in a book particularly if I don't think there should be any is to open the file, do a control plus a, to select all, then control plus u, to turn underline on, usinderling the entire book, then typing control plus U, to turn underlining off and remove it from the entire file. Are there other ways to preform this particular editing task? Shelley L. Rhodes, M.A. CVRT and Ludden black Labrador Guide Dog. Diamonds may be a woman's best friend, but a dog is mine.
