    G'day folks. For those of you who have Mac Word 2008, I wondered if you can describe to me - in "Microsoft Word for Dummies" terms - how to rid tables in a Word doc following a copy/paste from a web site. The tables didn't happen with my older Word version. Any tips you can give are most appreciated! :)

    Try selecting them with the cursor and then CUT (not delete).

    I didn't have luck with the cut (not delete) but
    Edit --> Paste Special --> Unformated Text worked.

    You guys are so clever! :wavey:

    -----------------------------

    Next question ...

    Is there a way I can tell this particular (saved) doc that I want to do this every time? Then I could use keyboard shortcuts and not have to pull down the menu every time. Sound possible??
