Word: Finde und ersetzte jede beliebige Anzahl von Leerschläge

If you’re editing a document written by one or more authors who don’t have a lot of Word experience/knowledge, there’s a good chance you’ll come across instances of multiple spaces where there should only be one space. The authors might have used multiple spaces to force layout (instead of tabs, styles, tables etc.), or they may have pasted words from another source into the document thus adding an extra space or two where there should only be one space.

Your job is to clean up the document — including finding all those extra spaces and removing them.

There are several methods you can use to do this (see the list at the end of this post for alternative methods I’ve documented), but the best — and quickest — method is to use a wildcard search to find any number of consecutive spaces and replace them with one space.

Here’s how:

1. Press Ctrl+H to open the Find and Replace dialog box.

2. Click the More button to display the search options.

3. Select the Use wildcards check box (this method won’t work unless this option is turned on).

4. In the Find what field, press the spacebar once followed by {2,10}. (See the Notes below about these numbers.)

5. In the Replace with field, press the spacebar once.

6. Click Replace All.


* You can use any numbers you like. The first number is the minimum number of spaces to find and replace and the second represents the maximum number of spaces to find and replace — 2,10 represents a minimum of two and a maximum of 10 consecutive spaces. If you legitimately use double spaces after a period, type {3,10} after the space instead, and if you know you’ve got long strings of spaces in the document, use a range such as {2,80}.
