This has been a problem for my colleagues and myself for quite some time. We will email a large amount of text to our boss to be edited. He will, regrettably, open our email in AOL? to make his edits and corrections he will hit reply? and this is when it happens? in AOL, as with several other email clients? the previous message is indented with a nice ?Blue Bar? This is ok, it helps to separate the new from the old. So, everything is ready to go, it's all formatted, you have several nice hyperlinks created, and it's time to send out the final copy- except the left hand column is riddled with broken up blue lines that wont go away! You could remove it by copy and pasting it into notepad, but that will strip it of all the other formatting to. Sometimes, if copied out of the email client for the first time and pasted into MS Word using >>Edit >>Paste Special >>Formatted Text (RTF) it will remove the blue bar and maintain all of the additional formatting. But if the document has been pasted into word with the blue lines, there is almost nothing you can do to remove them without removing all the other formatting as well. Does anyone know of anyway just to delete them from a document one and for all?
