HI Debby, Open Book is unique that it inserts blank lines between paragraphs. And you are wasting your effort inserting blank lines between paragraphs. Bookshare's tools will strip all blank lines between paragraphs when processing your book to convert it to daisy. Books most of the time have an indentation rather than a blank line to denote a new paragraph when printed. Sorry to tell you that you're wasting your effort putting in those blank lines. I wish I'd said it more gently somehow. Many OpenBook users mistakenly believe that all OCR programs, and all printers put a blank line between paragraphs. I just woke up from a nap. I should have some coffee. I'm not writing as clearly as I like. Sorry.

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?
