This problem is not exactly graphic design related, but I thought you all might be the best qualified to get me out of this jam: I'm using Word 2011 for Mac version 14.2 in a very long document I want to be words only, no text boxes, images, or graphics of any kind. I began to put in a series of dashes, which, upon hitting return, turned into solid lines. AND NOW THESE SOLID LINES WILL NOT GO AWAY. It's as if they're a permanent part of the document. I tried copying and pasting into a new document, but the lines come along, although there's no way to click on them to delete. Please help, computer people, and thanks in advance.

Word on Mac... tee hee, silly person.

I'm only guessing here. Send text to back or bring lines to front, click on them and press delete.
Or they are in one of the border sections for Word: border document, border text ( or something like that ).

Good Luck

PS: can you copy to Text Editor and then back?

Google: Microsoft+ Word + paste without formatting

1st result is a Microsoft support link where you see the icon to press. This will strip all tags and other layout rendering elements from the copy.

MANY THANKS to both of you. I'm undertaking all these options now.
