Hi Megan, I think I can help you figure out how to check for the number of hard page breaks in a book when editing with Microsoft Word. In Word, a page break is denoted when using find and replace by ^m. So, If you place that character string in both the find and replace boxes and take note of the number of replacements made when you execute the replacement, you'll know how many pages are in a book. What the instructions that amber posted are telling you to do is to replace a page break with a page break and note the number of replacements. What you're doing is sort of tricking Word into counting pages for you. If you want to eliminate soft page breaks, you can increase the paper size in the page setup dialogue. If you make your paper size something really long, 22 inches, for instance, then Word is tricked again into not inserting soft page breaks and confusing you with them. I realize I haven't described keystrokes for achieving these things. If you want me to do that, I will. Just hoping that an explanation of what you're trying to achieve might spark the light for you! Keep asking if you still have questions.

Well, I don't exactly understand how I'd figure out how many hard page breaks there are, but I'm glad to know they'd accept it. It seemed like they were getting so picky with everything that they wouldn't. But hey, if they're okay with it, can you just resubmit it as is and put hold for Megan in the title? That way I can finish reading it and will mark it for approval. I'm so confused about the whole page number thing I wasn't sure what to do. Sorry and thanks for letting me know what they said.

We are contacting you because your submission, Deep Drive: A Long Journey to Finding the Champion Within by Rob Bradford, Mike Lowell has been marked for more editing before publication on Bookshare.org. We invite you to contact volunteer@xxxxxxxxxxxxx if you need more information regarding this submission. We appreciate the time you spend contributing to Bookshare.org, and look forward to continuing to build the collection together. Below are some of the specific reasons for the request for further editing of this submission: To the rejecter: I am returning this book to the checkout queue since there are 274 hard page breaks in it, which is just fine. In fact, I'd approve the book as is. The reason you see over 400 page breaks is because your editor is counting soft page breaks as well as hard. Please ignore the soft page breaks. The only reason they are present is to tell you that if you were to print the book on a printer, that's where the next page would start. If you want to figure out how many hard page breaks there are, please do a global replace of page break to page break (which is ^m in MS Word) and look at that number. Thank you, The Bookshare Team Book blog: http://community.livejournal.com/book_cuddler/ I have accepted a seat in the House of Representatives, and thereby have consented to my own ruin, to your ruin, and to the ruin of our children. I give you this warning that you may prepare your mind for your fate. John Adams E-Mail: amber.wallens@xxxxxxxxx _____ A Good Credit Score is 700 or Above.
