Hi,

I have a word document of + / - 120 pages. Many lines are in red and bold. Is it possible to change all these lines at once?

You can use Find and Replace.
With the Find box on the 'Find and Replace' dialogue selected, click on the Format button and choose the Font item.  Then select the colour and attributes that you want to replace. Do a similar thing with the Replace box selected, and choose the new colour (probably 'Automatic') and attributes.

Then click the 'Replace All' button on the 'Find and Replace' dialogue.

Hi,

I know what is is. When i set the replace/format/font, the find is changed in the same format as the replace.

Use the Replace tab, and click in the Find box and then set the find colour and in the Replace box to set the Replace colour.

I do not understand. Every time I change the color in the Find tab, it changes the color of the Replace tab and vice versa.

In the picture on your document, you are using the Find tab. Don't.

Instead use the Replace tab. You should then see two boxes.

The top one is labelled 'Find with:'. Click on that, and the word above the three command buttons at the bottom of the window will be 'Find'. That means that anything you choose via one of those buttons will apply to the Find range.

The second box in the dialogue is labelled 'Replace with:'. When you click on it the word 'Find' above those three command buttons will change to 'Replace', which indicates that any setting chosen via the buttons will apply to the replacement text.
