George,

In fact, you only need to highlight two style tags (</para.><para.>).  This
is easiest if you happen to be in coded view.

But I take David's point anyhow, because "Join Styles" (and, for that matter
"Join Lines") can be used to join much more than two paragraphs, in which
case the highlighting has span all of the middle paragraphs in their
entirety, plus at least the end of the first and the start of the last.
This bigger bit of highlighting is indeed harder to do.

But, in this case, one could choose to join paragraphs into the growing
amalgamation one at a time.

Hi David,

Perhaps I didn't explain too well.

You only need to highlight a letter or two either side - between the two
paragraphs you want to join.

bla bla.</para.>
<para.>Bla bla

Thanks for the suggestion. I can see that your solution will work but it is
a little awkward if the paragraphs concerned are long.
This is
particularly the case for braille users of DBT. 

If a simpler fix does not exist now then it would be appreciated as a future
improvement.

Hi David,

Yes.  Highlight the end of the first and beginning of the second paragraph.
Go to the Layout menu, Join Styles.

Although in an ideal world (hint, hint, Peter) it would be nice to have an
advanced user option to remove just one of a pair of tags.

George.

I wonder if you know of a way round the following problem.

The codes <para.> and </para.> are linked. If one is deleted the other
automatically deletes itself. This means that if you attempt to merge two
paragraphs together by pressing [delete] [delete] [space] at the start of
the second paragraph then both paragraphs loose their codes and the combined
paragraph is no longer indented at its start.
