Exclude superscript footnote numbers when changing the font color in a Word document
Posted on 2016-11-19
Is there a way to format all content in a Word (2010) document except superscript numbers linked to footnotes?
On occasion I paste articles from the internet directly into Word documents. I use the standard Ctrl+v paste (vs. Special or TextOnly) because the articles commonly have numbered footnotes with the numbering in a different colored superscript font. (By the way, I realize — and it's OK — that the numbers link back to the footnote in the original webpage rather than to somewhere later in the Word doc.)
After pasting an article, I've noticed that I can Select All and change the font, the font size, and all of the paragraph settings without affecting the appearance of the footnote numbers. However, as soon as a make a change in the font color, it changes the color of the footnote numbers (but not the superscript format or link function).
Is there a way I can make the color change to all the normal text without affecting the color of the footnote numbers?
