I used tw4winExternal to skip the comments in the text. Now, I would like to search and replace the style with Normal - but the style does not change! This is not a search error, I can't change the style even manuallyicon_frown.gif

Quick help appreciated, deadline on line!

Deleting style from the doc helped for now Sep 12, 2007

However, I'd like to know how to change the styles without deleting them.

I noted that all tw4-styles get locked, once applied.

Thanks, Vito, but... Sep 12, 2007

As I said, I don't have a search problem. My problem is that the style is "locked".

tw4winExternal is a character-based style; have you tried to replace it with the "Default Paragraph Font" style?
