    If this is a scanned document, which is just a picture of the
    original, then the answer is no. Use a graphics program such as
    Windows Paint before you paste into Word.

    If it's actually text from another document, then the answer is yes.
    Select the parts you want to remove:

    - Click at the start, and hold down the Shift key while you click at
    the end, using the vertical scroll bar or the mouse wheel to scroll
    the screen if necessary.

    OR if the text is short enough to all be visible on the screen at
    once,

    - Click at one end and drag the mouse to the other end.

    Then press the Delete key. Repeat as necessary.

    I had a situation where someone had inserted a scanned copy of a drawing into a document I was editing. Within the body of that drawing, there was some hand writing that person wanted removed.
    I also tried to find an eraser tool. After not being able to find one, I came up with the idea to insert a text box over the top of the drawing just large enough to cover the handwriting. I then filled in the text box with the white color, which was the same color as the background of the document, so it would hide the handwriting under the text box. It worked great!

    You may have to take it one step further and make sure you also edit your text box border by removing the border then also setting it's transparency to 100%.
