I want to use Find and Replace to locate all instances of superscript text throughout a Word 2016 document.

I had a look at Microsoft Technet's search string guide but couldn't find one for superscript text.

Is there an easy way to do this?


You can do this using the "Advanced Find" in word.

On the Home tab, click on the Find Dropdown on the right hand side and click "Advanced Find"

You don't need to enter any text here as we are looking for a specific format, instead, click on "Format" at the bottom left, then "Font..."

enter image description here

check the "Superscript" box and press OK

then Press Find!

  • Fantastic, this is a really clear and useful answer! Thanks again. – Aaron Christiansen Mar 20 '18 at 9:57
