I have bookmarked a specific word in my document, it appears 4429 times. Now I just want to delete that word. The only option I can find is "delete bookmarked lines", but I don't want to get rid of the whole line, just the specific word.

  • You want to delete that word, or get rid of the bookmarks? Do you have other bookmarks or is it just these specific 4429 instances?

  • Does the word appear in the document in other places where it is not bookmarked?

    You cannot delete specific text from bookmarked lines, as bookmarks manage complete lines. You need to use search and replace to delete text.

In the Search menu, click the Replace command. In the dialog, enter your word in "Find what", clear the "Replace with", check the "Whole Word Only" and/or "Match Case" checkboxes if required. Then click "Replace All".
