Default Text boxes

After scanning a document into Word, all text is contained within boxes.
How do I delete all text boxes at once from a scanned document rather than
one box at a time?

Are they text boxes or frames? If the latter, you can remove them all with
Ctrl+A, Ctrl+Q. If they're text boxes, then, short of a macro, you need to
cut the text in the text box, paste it outside the text box, and then delete
the empty text box.

Thanks a bunch! I was able to delete the frames. The only drawback is that
all the indentations and formatting goes with the frames. But other than
that, it worked.
