I just press the enter key before and after each page break as I come to them. 
It won't hurt if you have more than one blank line. The Bookshare tools will 
automatically delete blank lines anyway. The point in placing them there is so 
that nothing else gets deleted too.

  Hi Reggie and all, 

  Thanks very much, Reggie!  I'm glad I'm not the first to have this question.  
*smiles*  I'm trying to commit as much as possible to memory now, to save 
myself tons of re-reading later.  LOL 

  Oh, I do love my reading hole, too!  Sometimes I have to remember to crawl 
out long enough to work, eat, etc.  Such an inconvenience.  LOL 

  Okay, another quick newbie question before I proceed here.  This one regards 
page breaks.  In one section of the manual, (Mayrie's very comprehensive 
section on proofing using Kurzweil), she mentions having blank lines around 
each page break, and the method of making sure this is done.  Find and replace, 
^m, and replace all with ^p^m^p.  But when I tried this, it threw off my pages 
by a lot.  Contents from one page ended up on another, etc, etc.  Is this still 
a necessary step, and if so, where's my mistake here?  I feel like I'm missing 
(or misunderstanding) something really obvious.  LOL 

  Hope to have this done by sometimes tomorrow.  Thank you Anastasia S for an 
excellent scan! 

  Thanks as always, everyone!  I'm getting the hang of this, and really 
appreciate everyone's kindness and patience!

  Exactly Kim.  I change my whole book to the font and 12-point.  Then I go 
back and enlarge book title to 16-point or larger depending on whether there 
are chapters and numbers and still other titles I want to make larger within 
the chapter.  (I know there is a name for those, but this fossil's brain is 
having a moment, smiles.) Remember also that you can put Chapter in front of 
one or 1 to help the reader.  

  Now I'll go back to my reading hole, which I crawl out of every now and then 
to ask a question or answer a question such as this one which I had to get help 
with too!  Hope this helps!

  Subject: [bksvol-discuss] font Question

  Hi All, 

  Well, I'm just about to begin proofing my first Bookshare book!  *gulps*  
Before I did it, I wanted to familiarize myself with the steps, and, as much as 
possible, get comfortable with them.  I know practice and the routine of doing 
them over and over for books will make it easier.  Hahaha.  Hopefully after 
successfully completing this one, I won't feel so daunted.  *sheepish grin* 

  My question is about the font.  This particular book has a font that my Word 
2003 doesn't have installed, so it said it would show me the closest font 
available.  I understand that Times New Roman is an easy font to read, and know 
from the documentation that it's a recommended font.  I already know that I 
can't change text.  But is it okay to change the type of font.  In other words, 
could I select the entire content of the rtf, change it to times new roman 12 
point, and then change the size of particular chapter titles, book title, etc, 
as required? 

  Any info is very much appreciated! 

  Thanks much!
