getting rid of hard returns Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I use Outliner at times to aggregate student comments from class assignments. I get the comments within the body of an email or a Word doc.

About 30% of the student comments have awkward hard returns in them.

How can I get rid of these hard returns in an easy way?

I tried going to Help, and then using the \r syntax for carriage return. But this doesn't seem to do the trick.

I know this must be simple (after all even MS Word can do it easily enough), but I'm clearly missing something here. Any help much appreciated!
 
Install the freeware WordServices:

Then use the Format menu options in the Services menu:

 
Jonathan,

Thanks, that's a great suggestion. It's not perfect, but it should be much quicker than what I'm doing now!

along these lines (no pun intended) is there a key or other quickie command for joining lines in an outline?

I'm a programmer, and this is common feature of text editors and one I use frequently.

thanks,
GW-
