When i do control x it says nothing. When i do control alt v, it also
does nothing. Any ideas?

is this pretty common? So do you start a document, or do you paste it

Press control + A to select all text, control x to cut/remove, then
instead
of the standard control + v to paste, press control + alt + v for the
special paste command. This last step will place you in a vertical list
box, arrow down to "Unformatted Unicode Text", which for me is at the
bottom. Press enter. Wait for a good 10-20 seconds, since larger files
take a while to process. You will end up with a very clean text-only
format. Good luck!

Hey guys,

Hope everyone is doing well. OK, so i haven't used word in a while
but now i need to.
Someone sent me a .docs file.
So i opened it with no problem.
When i arrow down it keeps saying table this and that, keeps saying
table, row, column, and all that. What is the best way i can get to
reading the text in the file?

Cheers,

Jed
