Hello, when I opened a Word 2003 document which contained many hyperlinks I noticed that the hyperlinks were not the kind of blue, underlined, clickable text, but had the form, i.e. {HYPERLINK"http://www.proz.com" \o "proz"}, which is really frustrating.

Does anybody know how I can get rid of this view? it is really frustrating, because there is a large number of lyperlinks in my text. Moreover, I do not remember doing anything strange that mght have caused it.

Another thing, does anyone know how I can deactivate more hyperlinks at a time in a Word 2003 document?

Please, help!

deactivating hyperlinks Dec 28, 2007

To deactivate multiple hyperlinks in a Word document, select the text containing the hyperlinks and then press the key combination CTRL SHIFT F9 (press and hold the CTRL and SHIFT keys and then press F9 at the same time). This converts all hyperlinks in the selected text (and other text generated by field codes) to ordinary text.

You can also use this to convert tables of contents and indexes to ordinary text.
