[bksvol-discuss] short lines etc

Dear E,

We may be talking about the same thing but I'm not sure. In the file I'm working on, even when I delete the blanks, which I think are hard line breaks, I can't make the lines longer. It's like the text is almost column width. I'd work with you but would probably frustrate you because my understanding of my computer remains vague at best. My bag of tricks work miraculously, but when they don't I'm flat out stopped.

If you want to tackle this off list, everyone knows where to find me, at

Always with love,

Lissi

Scans are not supposed to have these end of line markers except around page numbers and at the end of paragraphs.

Lissy is you are also running into this and that is what you mean by short lines then we need to get together and figure out if this is a scanner error setting in the software or something.

Cindy since you Apple and Apple scanning equipment, what you experience will probably not have any bearing on those using Microsoft based scanning software though of course that is a guess.

E,

I don't know if this has any bearing on your question,
but anything I scan has the end-of-line return at the
end of each line. And Amber's Memoirs of Cleopatra
does, too. I remove them before I send mising pages to
people and also when I find them when I validate.

I scan using, now an Epson 1660 and, I think, in
myother place, a 14 something. And convert to Microsof
Word for the Mac.  If there's a setting to eliminate
those, I'd be interested in knowing it. However,
eliminating them as I read and replacing with a space
between words brought together has become automatic
with me.

I don't have or find them in others' work  in the
middle of sentences, though.
