I have a 60,000 word document which contains a fair amount of formatting - in particular it contains many:
Pictures tables numbered lists bullet-point lists sections/subsections/sub-sub sections bold/italic It does **not** contain (and will never need to contain) any hyperlinks
Unfortunately the file has become "slightly" corrupted. There are a minefield of hidden codes that have been turned on and off and this is starting to be a drag. I need to somehow clean up the file. One thing in particular is that there appear to be some hyperlinks that have become mangled. I don't see them in the main document at all, but if I cut sections of the document and paste it in another empty document then suddenly hyperlinks appear out of nowhere.
One idea I had was to somehow transfer the file to another format, or another word processor with less features, or at least without hyperlinks and then copy it back. Any suggestions what format/other software would be suitable. Can anyone suggest any alternative solutions?
