That sometimes happens when books with section breaks instead of page breaks have different page setups for different settings. You can go to page setup, select applies to whole document (not this section as is probably the default) and then set the page size and margins to something reasonable (like all margins 1 inch and page size letter). Another and maybe simpler way if you have a copy saved from just before you changed the section breaks to page breaks is to go to the end of the book, set up the find and replace to convert section breaks to page breaks, then select the find and replace option to search backwards. I don't know why this works, but I discovered it by accident on one of the first books I proofed for bookshare which would go into the one character line format when I tried to convert section breaks to page breaks.

Hi this is kenny. I am proofreading a book called the singing by ck. williams When I opend the book in word it had section breaks When I replaced the section breaks with page breaks The text started looking horrible It was showing one letter on one line at a time. Do I reject the scan and ask for a rescanning of the book or is there away to do this without rejecting the book.
