There is probably a paragraph mark between paragraphs. Most reading software does what you tell it to do with paragraphs (i.e. indent, put in a blank line, etc.)
I wouldn't bother with them as you will mess this up by putting extraneous lines in the text. Besides, the bookshare tool takes all your arduously put in blank lines and throws them away. [Sorry about that.]

Hi everyone!When I proofed my first book and this one, all of the paragraphs were together without a blank line between each paragraph, unlike the way it is often done when writing on the computer and how the OCR software does it, at least, OpenBook does. I suspect that is because of the file being saved in the RTF format, which probably loses some of the attributes.Both for the first book I proofed and the one I just started, I have been putting the blank lines back in. Is that necessary? I read each line one at a time by down arrowing so that I can read carefully to determine where one paragraph ends and the next one begins. I thought I should do that, because it didn't seem like each paragraph started with an indent. Am I wrong? Is it really indented?Debby --Enjoy what you have rather than desiring what you don't have.
