Remove Font Formatting


Authors often go to great lengths to format their documents using various fonts, point sizes, paragraph formats, and so on. What they don't realize is that such formatting, nice as it may look to them, is nowhere near the look you or your designer will specify. In fact, their formatting usually just gets in the way, making editing and typesetting more difficult than it should be.

This option removes all directly applied font formatting, such as Times New Roman 12 point. However, it retains certain character formatting (bold, italic, underline, word underline, superscript, subscript, small caps, all caps, strikethrough, and hidden) as well as paragraph styles, such as Normal and Heading 1. This leaves you with a document in which you can modify the paragraph styles to format the document properly.
