Hi Lori and everyone!

I prefer to strip the headers as I come to them in my reading. That way, I am sure what I am stripping, and the little interruption in reading isn't bothersome to me.

I know this is a personal thing, so do what feels right to you.

People have made several useful suggestions for stripping headers with global search and replace, but even so I always remove them manually as I read through the book. For me, removing them manually just feels safer.

Sometimes I go through the text page by page and remove the headers before reading the book; that way the text reads more smoothly and without interruption. But either way, I remove them one by one!

But I do proofread fewer books than many of you do.

Thanks, Jamie. I have suggested this before. Oftentimes, there is a tab after the header and before the page number on the right page, and a tab before the header and after the page number on the left page. I have used this technique of removing headers with their associated tabs to eliminate thousands of headers without fear of removing text that I shouldn't.

It is also true, as you say, that search and replace should always be used with care.

Lots of times there is a tab after the header. If you search for the text plus a tab you might have better luck in doing a global replace, but I recommend using a global replace very carefully.

For example if it is The Catcher in the Rye that is the header look for The Catcher in the Rye^t (^t is the tab symbol in Word 2003).
