Hi,

Given a piece of text is it possible to remove all pieces of text enclosed
in bbrackets, throughout the entire piece?

Use Find and Replace (Ctrl+H).

Click "More", then check "Use wildcards", then
In Find what, enter \[*\]
To remove the brackets and the text inside, leave the Replace With box
empty, or to just remove the text, enter [] in the Replace With box
Then just hit Replace All

Enjoy,
Tony
