To remove all formatting, try selecting the whole document (control+a) and
then press alt followed by h then e.

Alternatively, you could paste the text into a document as unformatted text.
To do that, copy to the clipboard in the normal way and then instead of
control+v for normal paste do control+alt+v and then arrow down to
unformatted Unicode text and press enter.

I hope one of those works.

Subject: [BCAB] Word Document Format

I have a mess of a 20 page contract specification in word.
It has bullets, numbers, letters and roman numerals as denotations.
I need to make it consistent so it looks like an adult produced it.
I thought if I copied into word pad it would remove all format and I could
start from scratch but it didn't.
Any ideas on best approach.
I think there is a keystroke for removing all format if that is likely the
most efficient manner but I don't recall it?
