    If I have a document that is filled with 3-return line breaks, is there a Search/Replace to get it down to one return?

    Regards,

    The code for a paragraph break (return) is ^p. So enter ^p^p^p in the Find what box, and ^p in the Replace with box.

    If your document contains manual line breaks, use ^l (with a lower case L) instead of ^p.
