Angry corrupt Headings

When I go Insert > Hyperlink > bookmark and scroll up to the Headings, I see that word has "randomly" added some numbers to the front of them - how do I remove thes numbers?

Hi ireeve,

Could the numbers be related to the heading levels and/or the heading numbers in the body of the document? Is there a reason you're using hyperlinks instead of ordinary cross-references?

Default One page word file - shows problem

This shows the problem - difficult to explain it!

Hi ireeve,

I suspect the document has somehow become corrupt. To remedy that (assuming corruption is the case), try the following:
1. insert a new last paragraph into the document
2. copy everything except that new last paragraph into a new document
3. close the old document
4. save the new file over the old document

Hi ireeve,

OK, I've found the source of the problem, but I have no idea about its cause. What you have in the document is a bunch of 1pt characters in the ZWAdobeF font. If you do a Find/Replace for that font, with nothing as the replacement text, the troublesome 1pt characters will be deleted and your headings for the cross-references will be corrected.

Yes that worked.
You are very clever - I was almost there, I had found the extra characters and was writing a macro to move one character at a time, check its horizontal position and if not moved - delete it. I think that would have worked - but the font is so elegant - very good.

Thank you
Sir

Ian
