Yes, though it isn't entirely clear whether you are referring to Content, Forms or Active-X controls.

Simply deleting them isn't a problem though you may have to remove Forms protection or to switch to Design mode.
Sorry, misread the question, missing the How? part.

Basically you select the control and press delete, but note the bit about removing protectipon or entering design mode (depends on the control type)

Graham, I added the Form Design button to the ribbon, but I don't see what it does.  See attached file.  It is a template.  When I invoke the template, it creates a new document but it also display form fields.  Maybe I don't have the correct utility loaded.  Any help in removing all form fields and references is appreciated.
