Formatting question

Post by bobmacatq » 2011-05-23 10:45:49

I "clip" a lot of newspaper articles and I want to start using NWP 2 to do that, but I've run into a problem. When I use Bean to do this, it has a simple command on the edit menu "remove all tables" - that eliminates funny farmatiting issues carried over from the web page. I can't find a way to do this in NWP 2! Can someone help?

Here's one thing that might work:
1. Place your selection inside a table, then select all of its cell.
2. Use the menu Table > Copy Table Text.
3. Delete the selected table.
4. Paste the table content.

If you do this often enough, you could use a macro for this. I'll attach one here that converts all tables in the document to regular text.
