Hi, some of you (most?) know me from the discussion list, but I've just started validating. smile.

I haven't used MS Word much in the past, but am using it to validate as WordPerfect seems to write out rtf files slightly differently than Word does.

I'm running into something that I'd like to handle with a search and replace in Word, if there's any way to do it.

When I do a replace to change hard-coded section breaks into page breaks, Word automatically places a paragraph mark at the end of a page. When a book has a sentence that runs across a page break, it ends up indenting the first line at the start of the new page, even though that line is often really the last half of a sentence. When a book scan has page numbers at the bottom of each page, it's always going to happen this way.

Is there a way around this, other than fixed it one line at a time? I don't want to eliminate all indentations at the true beginnings of paragraphs, as it makes a book very difficult to read for a disabled sighted reader like myself. smile.
