[bksvol-discuss] Re: intro and a few questions

The Edit file has both Find and Replace. I'm used to using the keyboard, 
though; the apple key plus F takes you to Find, and the replace command is also 
there;  uh oh. Are you sighted? if  not will you understand what I'm trying to 
explain?
When the Find-replace box opens,at the bottom on the right-hand side there is a 
box marked special with up and down arrows. When you click on that a menu 
opens;with your cursor in the find space you can scroll up to section break and 
click on it; Wait! I just--the keystroks to use for section break is the 
upside-down caret that's above the number 6 on the keyboard and a lower case b. 
When this is in the Find box,  you can replace with upside-down caraet and 
lower cas m to put in manual page breaks; (or leave Replace empty if you just 
want to get rid of the section breaks 

I hope this is helpful and not confusing
Cindy

want to stress that you do not want to get rid of page breaks.  You do, 
however, want to get rid of section breaks if they exist in your file, and 
replace them with page breaks.  A book without page breaks is a book very 
likely destined not to be added to the Bookshare collection.  I know that 
all of the terminology is confusing, so with any luck, you meant to say that 
you 
want to delete section breaks, or more accurately to replace them with page 
breaks.

questions. I read the sample document and the instructions but I am on a 
 mac running is10 lion. How am I to strip all the page breaks out using 
text edit and I forgot what else I need to do. Maybe I should not have chosen a 
90 page gook for my first task lol! I'm in college and want to try and do this 
as time permits so I won't give up but thats my first question is how do I 
remove all page breaks with out looking for them in text edit?
