Hi,

Using Word, I created a document where I have inserted sections delimited by the following tags <INTERNE EME></INTERNE EME>.

Is it possible to automate the exclusion of these sections when printing or exporting in PDF format?

Regards,
Richard

Hi,

you could change the format of these sections as hidden

You can use Replace to do that
in FindWhat
 <INTERNE EME>*</INTERNE EME>

Using wildcards

in ReplaceWith
^&

With Format Font Hidden ticked

The search using wildcards does not work :-(

I will investigate further to find out why it fails.

The answer is good but it may need a little more information related to the Word versions because it does work properly with my configuration.
