Hi, Cindy. The Bookshare automated system won't acknowledge those blank lines as page breaks, so I'm almost positive there actually have to be breaks in the file for it to be acceptable. Take care.

I did save in both rtf and Word, and when I work in RTF it automatically switches to Word, but I don't think I did exactly what you suggest, so I'll try both your and Robin's suggestion. I have continued working. When I put in hard page breaks and close, then re-open, there is one line space between the page number and the preceding text (the page numbers are at the bottom of the page) and three line spaces between the page number and the next page's text. Is this satisfactory, or do there have to be hard breaks? Cindy > Cindy: > Try saving in Microsoft word's format.
