BlankOh Lori, you’re absolutely right; thanks so much!  Netta, I hope you’re 
still reading here!

Netta and Martie,

If the page break is right after the last character, not on the next line you 
would want to replace with 

^p^p^m.

The first caret+p places the page break on a new line.

The second caret+p will add the blank line.

Hi Netta,

   Well, I think so, but I really stress the word think.  Before you try this, 
copy the text of the book into another file just in case.  I think:

In the find box type ^m

In the replace box type ^p^m

go to and hit replace all.

I think that will put a blank line before each page break.  HTH!

Hey guys; 

Is there some way to insert blank lines after text when the page break follows 
right after? Here's what I mean. The end of the text of the book is followed 
directly by the page break. Looking like this: 

The cat sat on the counter as Craig prepared oatmeal.pagebreak 

 

There is not the needed blank line nor space after the period at the end of the 
line. So, other than going through page by page, is there some way to insert a 
space or blank line after the end of the text. 

Thanks, (if this isn't explained well enough, please let me know. Again, 
thanks...
