I bought some shoes from a drug dealer. I don’t know what he laced them with, but I’ve been tripping all day.

I think that all right-thinking people in this country are sick and tired of being told that ordinary, decent people are fed up in this country with being sick and tired. I’m certainly not, and I’m sick and tired of being told that I am.

Does anyone know of some way to remove all the hyperlinks in a document with one command, rather than having to cancel several dozen of them individually?

I've copied a couple of articles from Wikipedia so I can reference them on my thumb drive when I don't have access to the web, and I find the tons of blue underlines very distracting. I'd love to get rid of them, especially since, when I'm double-checking the docs, I can't use the links anyway 'cause I'm not connected to the Internet.

A little help, somebody?

When you paste in the text, you should get a clipboard formatting option pop-up. If you choose Keep Text Only it will delete all formatting - unfortunately, the actual text of the link will probably stay.

I see you have your solution.

I think it would also work to use Paste Special under the edit menu and then select the Unformatted text option.

the problem with converting to text or pasting unformatted is that you lose all the other formatting as well. The macro just removes the links.
