Remove character formatting from text

Design templates, styles, & page layouts

Remove character formatting from text by selecting (none) from the character styles drop-down list.

To remove character formatting:

  1. Select the text from which you want to remove the character formatting.
  2. Select Edit > Format > (none) from the character styles drop down list

    The character formatting is removed and the underlying paragraph style is applied to the text.

Tip: In some operating systems, use CTRL+Spacebar to remove character formatting from text. However, other operating systems use this same shortcut to open the Chinese IME. Change this setting by assigning different keyboard shortcuts to your operating system's input language by using the Advanced Key Settings tab.
