    Another Problem

    I have a document that in over 150 pp long. Roughly 1/2 of the document have one space after the period at the end of a sentence, and the other 1/2, two spaces. I would like to do a global search and replace the instances where there is only one space with two spaces, and also search and replace where there is a space before a paragraph mark (hard return) and replace it with no spaces.
    Thanks.

    JL,

    Use the More button on the S&R dialog to expand the dialog box.
    Then use the Special button to get access to things like the Paragraph mark, Tabs, etc.
    Then just tell it what to search for and what to replace. HTH
