I was recently asked how to remove the formatting from a paragraphI gave the answer I have given for years which is, “Select the paragraph and press the CTRL+SPACEBAR keys.” Only to be told that didn’t work.
- Select the text to be stripped of all formatting. If it is the entire document, press CTRL+A to select it.
- Click on the Home tab.
- Within the Styles group, click on the Launch button to display the list of Styles.
- From the top of this list, click on Clear All. All the formatting is removed.
- Close the Styles list.
