[bksvol-discuss] Re: line breaks

Robert

I'm using OB 8+. I'm having similar difficulties. I'm working with someone who's trying to help me figure what to do differently to make the scans acceptable. We need to stay in touch and compare notes.

Sorry, but two questions:
a) What do you mean by "blacken", and
b) which software is this?
I did five books, got four sent back. I'm retired, and really want to do this as I've been freeloading off you all for four years. FYI: I use OpenBook 7.0, an Ebson (I think that's how you spell it) 2480 scanner, and prefer using Word Perfect 12.0 for word processing, though I can make my way around in Word.

There (1) 2 ways to get rid of the undesirable line breaks:(1) delete each one manually and replace it with a space or (2) Blacken the whole paragraph up to the paragraph sign at the end of the paragraph and re place with a space. The first time you'll have to use just replace, not replace all, but after that, with he otherparagraphs, you can replace replace all. If youmake a mistake--and you'll know right away because you'll see just one huge paragraph, you can undo
