I inserted the title Dr. in the name of one of the people in a small PAF file, then generated a gedcom. Then I opened up the gedcom in a text editor (I use Notepad++) and was able to strip out the title, leaving only the name.

Now, this was only one instance in a small gedcom, but it might work for you. To help to define the string more precisely, when calling out the title Dr., for instance, include the space after the period.

The method is not fool-proof, since trying to delete the title Miss will also affect any occurrence of Mississippi; but including the space after Miss should prevent that sort of problem.
