    how to format line breaks (not sure)

    Hi,

    I would like to format some texts and make the text justified. I did a quick research on this subject here before this post and most refers to Autoformat, which for some reason did not work in my case.

    I have attached an example of what I mean. The 1st paragraph is the text with line breaks, and the 2nd paragraph is how I want it to be. Any ideas of how to do this?

    I used to delete line breaks manually, but I have a rather long text this time.

    Thanks in advance

    Re: how to format line breaks (not sure)

    Welcome to Woody's Lounge!

    If I select the first block of lines (which are actually separate paragraphs), then select Format | AutoFormat... and click OK without changing any settings, the paragraph breaks within the block are replaces by spaces. After that, I only need to click the Justify button on the toolbar to make the text fully justified.

    You can also replace the paragraph breaks with spaces as follows:
    - Select the block.
    - Select Edit | Replace... or press Ctrl+H
    - Enter <code>^p</code> in the Find what box (this is the "code" for a paragraph break)
    - Enter a space in the Replace with box.
    - Click Replace All.
    - Click No when Word offers to continue with the rest of the document.
