    Is there a quick way of removing all the Manual Page Breaks in a 30 page document.

    Find/Replace. Look at the special characters pop-up to confirm the code to find, then replace with nothing. Quick enough?

    Depending upon how the document is formatted, you might want to replace the manual page break with a space or a paragraph mark instead of replacing with "nothing."

    Excellent point. Each break might need to be handled a bit differently! There goes the quick solution. <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>

    Usually, a manual page break can safely replaced by a paragraph; however, depending on the formatting of the document, I sometimes replace it with a manual line break instead.
