How to remove the frame in the Word?
Many of PC users had a problem when scanning a document or converting it from a PDF document to a Word document: how to remove the frame from the Word?
Text boxes in Microsoft Word documents are used to embed functions in a document or for a specific placement of text blocks. Sometimes a scanned document will automatically generate a frame from the text when the character recognition software converts the document to MS Word.
Such frames do not rarely make a document almost inaccessible for simple text editing, since all the text is inside them. We are faced with a task and we need to decide how to remove a frame in the Word so that we can edit the document. There are two approaches to solving this problem. One of them is to remove all the frames from the document at once, the second one - to remove the frames separately, one after another. And so, how to remove the frame in Word:
Removing individual frames is an easy process.In Microsoft Word 2007, for example, this option is in the “Page Layout” menu - “Page Borders” - Type: None. Or, in any version of Microsoft Word, you can right-click on the edge of the frame and select the “Frame Format“ option, then “Delete Frame”. The frame will be deleted.
But deleting in this way will take a long time. So another approach is to remove all the frames at the same time. For this:
- Open the desired Microsoft Word document;
- Copy all the text by pressing Ctrl + A (select) and Ctrl + C (copy) and paste it into notepad by pressing Ctrl + V (paste);
- Open a new Microsoft Word document;
- Copy the text from notepad and paste it into a Microsoft Word document;
- Done, frames removed.
To delete a frame along with the contents of the text, select it by clicking on the edge and press the “Delete” key.
