    I have a series of rtf files with columns of text. The columns of text are in frames with two frames side by side on each page. There are thousands of pages like this. Is there a way to remove all frames from the document and still keep the text formatting of the document that was inside each frame? Is there, perhaps, a macro to do this frame removal. I am aware I can remove each frame, individually by clicking on the frame, clicking format, clicking remove. However, with thousands of pages and even more thousands of frams, I need a more efficient way of converting the whole document.

    Thank you in advance for any replies.

    Can you put a small example up here so that we can see what you are dealing with. Obviously, you should remove any sensitive information.

    Well, I tried to paste in three text boxes or frames in this response attempt but all the frames are removed along with other formatting. If you have Word, you can create the frames or text boxes on a page. What I am dealing with is frames, not text boxes. Thanks for the response.

    OK
    If I have got you right, you need to click on Format, Frames, Frame Properties,Border

    and then you can turn off all borders by clicking on the option - No Borders.

    Leaves pages looking the same.

    Sorry if it isn't the solution.

    I found the answer. Select the frame or frams and hit Ctrl + Q.
