I have a word document which has a large number of multiple spaces between words (ie within the sentences between the words the space bar has been pressed a number of times).  Is there a way to find and remove these quickly.

Just do 'search and replace', enter two spaces in the search field, one space in the replace field. Do "replace all', and repeat this process until no more occurences are found.

You can do it in one step with wildcarding. (Click 'More' and tick use Wildcards)

Find: [ ]{1,}

Replace with a single space
