Is it possible to delete all text of a certain style?  When I "Select all uses of XYZ style" in the Styles drawer "Delete" is not active with the selected text and though it's "selected" I can delete....

    No need to post this twice.

     

    When you do a search and replace you can find every string of particular text of a particular style as applied from the Styles Drawer.

     

    Pages does not let you search on wild cards, nor on text properties which have been applied without using named styles.

    If you have known for years, then I presume you know the answer already.

     

    If you only want to show and print headings:

     

    Menu > View > Show Document Outline > fold up the text to Headlngs only > Print

     

    btw Why didn't you just try this? You seem to be aware of Outlines. I actually did a test because I thought there might be a problem, which is why you were asking. And there isn't.

    Glad that's solved.

     

    Whilst you can use the Toolbar to open and close levels, the fast way is just to double click on the levels' bar in the text.
