Removing errant data on Confluence page

I am somewhat new to using Confluence.

I am in the process of uploading some existing Word documents that have text on them. When the Word documents  are uploaded, Confluence seems to have its own scheme for how the text should be formated. (i.e.–1....2...a...b and so on in a more or less outline-like  format).

I can remove most of those by placing cursor next to each character and deleting, but there are always some that are extremely difficult to remove. There always seems to be one remaining character that I can't seem to remove.

Is there another way that errant text can be removed off of a Confluence page?

The Confluence Source Editor will allow you to get rid of any unwanted stuff. Ultimately when migrating from Word to Confluence I always tell my editors not to use the import function but rather to copy and paste from Word into a plain text editor such as notepad to remove any formatting and then copy and paste from notepad into Confluence and reformat the document. This gets you the cleanest result.
