I have some personal documents (about 100 pages in a few .docs & .rtfs) created by ocr software and all the text seems to be in text-box like things called 'frames'. We need to change them into ... well, regular word-processing files without the frames.
In Word '07 (or Office '07), how do I move (or convert?) the text within the frames to formatted text in documents, please?
I think the frame-things are the biggest problem and I don't quite know the 'correct' question to ask, so here are a couple other possibile questions that might help someone find the answer I need:
How do I remove the frames and keep the formatted text?
How do I remove the frames but keep the text with its font-sizes and indents?
I don't want the text-box things and I need to change the font anyway--what should I do to get the text and have as little formatting as possible to do after?
I don't know what frames are but they are in the way, and I don't need the old page numbers, or headers, or etc., but how do I get the words and still know what bits of the words are titles, chapters, italics, etc. (if possible) to make refomatting easier on me & Mrs FC after getting just the words?
Please write if you have questions or answers!
