Hi Michael,

You have number of possible line break solutions here.  I'll
detail two.

1)  Put the line breaks in Word, but before you import the
file, go to DBT's Global, Word Importer dialog and check
"Preserve skipped lines".  Of course this will affect ALL
imported Word documents.

Alternatively,

2)  Use the code [[*sk1*]]  (Skip # number of lines)

As regards [[*odd*]] Codes, don't worry.  One of the
(currently) nice things about this feature is that it indeed
does NOT affect embossing and such like.

That said, in a future incarnation of DBT, I would very much
like to see a Code/Style parser/validator.  But as you can
see, I'm whispering, otherwise Peter will be after me with a
big stick!  (Smile)

George.

Subject: [duxhelp] Line breaks in word files

Hi,

We are trying to create a document that has some blank lines
in it. Our final product should look like:

Line 1

Line 2

If we leave a blank line in the word file, this is removed
when opened in DBT. If we imbed a line break in the word
file like so:

Line 1
[[*<*]]
Line 2

We get two blank lines instead of one (after removing the
para. style).
Is there a way to get a single blank line in the final
product?

On a second front, while I was embedding codes into the word
file, I attempted to import an error using this ability. By
using:

Line1
[[*breakme*]]
Line2

I was able import the invalid code into DBT. However, this
did not affect embossing at all (this is good!). I see that
in the manual you mention the [idle] code, is it possible to
insert any code, and have anything not recognized be
ignored?

Thank you very much!
