Hi Bud,
  What I do is to add an extra character to the author's name where I want it 
to remain (like on the title and copyright pages), then I do a global replace 
of the author's name to nothing, and delete the extra characters.  Yes, it's a 
pain, but it's better than deleting each one by hand.
  (As an example, if the author is John Milton, I change the name to Johnx 
Milton on the title and copyright pages, delete all of the John Milton names 
everywhere, then change Johnx Milton back to John Milton.)
  Just a suggestion, Carrie

  Hi Gang,

Is it possible to delete something that repeats over and over like 
the author's name or the title with either spell check or rank 
spelling? I can't figure out how it could be done but I'm sure it 
can be done if I knew what I was doing. That would save a lot of 
time from going through the book page by page and doing it by hand.
