Convert Hidden text to Regular Text Word 2007

Came across a problem this morning converting Hidden text in word 2007 to normal text.

1. Enable the hidden text

 a. windows ribbon, start menu, word options

b. Select Display, then Make sure Hidden Text is selected:

2. On the ribbon, in the editing box (typically far right), select the select drop down, then Select Text with Similar Formatting.

3. On the ribbon in the styles box click the arrow with the bar above it

    and select clear formatting

There you go, now you know how to clear the formatting, there are some other ways floating around the internet explaining how to make hidden text normal text, but they didn't work for me. This worked.

Good luck and let me know if you find any other solutions that are easier (short cut keys would be awesome too).
