If you are experiencing a problem with formatting in Microsoft Word, you may want to clear all of the formatting for a selection of text.
- Highlight the text whose formatting you want to remove.
- Click on the Style drop-down menu in the upper left-hand corner next to the font menu.
- Select Clear Formatting.
Microsoft Word restores the formatting to the normal style (Normal style: The default paragraph style used in documents based on the Normal template (Normal.dot).) for your document.
Applies to Microsoft Word 2003.
