Hi Valerie,

I’m not scanning, I am proofing.  (smile) I don’t know how to replace tabs. I 
know replacing line breaks is a lot of trouble with a lot of steps.

I don’t know how to send you a page.  (smile)

Hi, Sue! 

It sounds possible that someone or something substituted a line break with a 
tab.  I would be glad to look at a page and test for you to see if you can then 
do a global replace of tabs with spaces.  Or you could try that and revert if 
it does not work.

Which scan engine are you using?

Good luck!

  Hi All,

  In the book I have started proofing there is a problem with tabs on some 
lines, not on all lines.  There will be a portion of text, then a big space, 
then the rest of the line.  If I backspace between the first and second parts 
of a line, the last word of the first portion is up against the first word of 
the second portion.  Then if I space just one, it goes back the way it was.  As 
I understand it, the tool takes out these spaces, but I would feel a lot better 
if I knew a way to remove them.  They are not tables.  It is a novel, and they 
just continue the story.  Is there a way to correct this problem?  Oh, and I 
have Word 2010.  (smile)
