    Re: line up text (Word 2000)

    Hi primerov,

    If by 'broken' you mean there's a carriage return at the end of each line, that can be fixed with a Find and Replace: In the find box type '^p' (without the quotes) and in the Replace box type a space (or nothing at all if there's aleady a space before or after the crarriage return)

    Other than that, it may be that the paragraph and/or font formatting that you're pasting into in Word is different to what you had in Word Pad. If that is so, setting the font and paragraph formatting for the affected style to be the same in Word would fix that.

    Cheers

    Edited to add screenshot

    If you press Enter after each line, as you did in your post, instead of letting the application wrap the text automatically, Justify won't have any effect. You should only press Enter if you want to start a new paragraph, not to start a new line. In the attached screenshot, all text is justified, but the upper part has paragraph marks after each line, while the lower part only has a paragraph mark at the end.

    You may be able to correct it as follows. You can use Undo if things go wrong.
    1. <LI>Select Edit | Replace... or press Ctrl+H.
      <LI>In the Find What box, type <code>
      ^p^p</code>
      (this stands for two consecutive paragraph marks)
      <LI>In the Replace With box, type <code>
      @@@</code>
      or some other string that doesn't occur in your text.
      <LI>Click Replace All.
      <LI>Change the text in the Find What box to <code>
      ^p</code>

      <LI>Clear Replace With box.
      <LI>Click Replace All.
      <LI>Change the text in the Find What box to <code>
      @@@</code>
      (or whatever string you used in step 3)
      <LI>In the Replace With box, type <code>
      ^p^p</code>

      <LI>Click Replace All.
    This may repair your text.
