Another common example might be a forwarded email I've pasted into Word that has the > character at the beginning of each line. The email has great information, but I don't need to have all the carets display. In instances where I don't want this extra information, I highlight the desired text using the ALT drag method.
To highlight a vertical text section in Microsoft Word,
1. Using your mouse, click to mark the beginning of your text selection
2. Press and hold the ALT key while dragging the mouse to make your selection
3. You can now apply formatting options to this selection as usual.
