Hi all,

Is there a feature in Word or a document program, that can delete a set of words from an entire document automatically, without having to go through pages and pages myself? lazy i know haha

The best I can come up with is to go through it with Find & Replace. Find each word, then in the Replace With box leave it blank and press Replace.

Note this works in Word 2008 on my Mac so it should theoretically work in the PC version of Word if that's what you're running.

Don't use Word to edit HTML, you'll go mad as it's useless for all web stuff.
