Peter
 
Thank you for the advice. I thought I had tried that and found it did not do 
what I wanted but having looked at it again it is definitely a simpler route 
with the current software. 
 
Thinking about possible improvements. 
1. It would be good do the operation without having to block any text, ie just 
from placing the cursor either at the end of the first paragraph or at the 
beginning of the second.)
2. My  "natural" way of joining paragraphs in a word processing document would 
be to press delete at the beginning of the second paragraph. At the moment that 
method messes up the first paragraph's settings. Any change to allow this would 
be an improvement.
 
Of the above I would see (1) as being the improvement which may be easier to 
implement. 
 
David

David,

Use Layout, Join Lines instead of Layout, Join Paragraphs.  You should then
get what you want in one step.

I was too hasty in saying "I can see that your solution will work" as I
wrote it without actually trying it myself -- it clearly seemed reasonable!!

However having followed what you have said, I am still finding a problem.The
para. codes do go but they are replaced by a line break so the paragraphs
are still not joined as the second one is on a new line. Agreed it is then
possible to delete the line break and then add in the required space.
However this does seem a bit of a sledgehammer to crack the proverbial nut!

David

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.
