This method does not remove character formatting that has been applied by using a character style. To remove character formatting that the user has applied by using character styles, use the ClearCharacterStyle() method. To remove all character formatting, regardless of whether the user has applied it by using character styles or manually through the formatting features in Microsoft Office Word, use the ClearCharacterAllFormatting() method.


To remove paragraph formatting, see the ClearParagraphAllFormatting(), ClearParagraphDirectFormatting(), or ClearParagraphStyle() method.
