Cool tricks in Word

If you are like me, then you are constantly copying and pasting from other documents, slides, or Web pages that you’ve created into Word 2003. It’s a great repository for various content. The only problem is the formatting. Have you tried to paste HTML into Word lately? It will end up being pages and pages long. Try this.

  • To remove all the formatting and related stuff like text boxes, select the text and hit Ctrl + Shift + N to remove all but the font formatting.
  • To wipe out all formatting, select the text and hit Ctrl + Space.

I can’t remember who told me about these shortcuts, but I’m much appreciative. I’m sure there’s more in Word as well.
