[bksvol-discuss] Re: too many spaces

Actually, replacing spaces Is a lot easier than that in Word.  Enter ^w in
the Find What field and a single space in the Replace with field.  This
replaces all occurrences of whitespace with a single space.  For those of
you who aren't familiar with the term whitespace, it refers to strings of
spaces and tabs in any combination.  Replacing whitespace with a single
space will not only remove extra spaces, but tabs as well.

BTW, doing this with a global replace isn't an instant process.  Expect it
to take 30 seconds sometimes, even on a new computer.

Load the rtf file into words, enter control h to bring up the find and 
replace, hit the space bar the number of spaces you want to find. tab to 
the replace field and hit the space bar for the number you want. Select 
replace all with ault and a. . Ok and the number of replacements made will 
come up. hit enter and again ault and a. . Continue until there no 
replacements. , hi
