Delete All Bookmarks in a Document

Word offers no built-in way to delete all of a document’s bookmarks at once. This hack shows you how to do it with some VBA.

Bookmarks let you quickly navigate through a document. But if you will eventually import your document into another program, such as Quark or FrameMaker, those bookmarks can cause trouble—for example, FrameMaker attempts to convert some bookmarks into its own similar “marker” feature, but it often creates unresolved cross-references that you must delete. Conversely, when exporting to Word format from another program, the program may create bookmarks of questionable value in the Word document.

You can select InsertBookmark and delete bookmarks one at a time, but if a document has dozens or more, you’ll be clicking for a while. The macro in this hack will delete them all at once.
