Jamie, Sounds like it might be a Line Break (Shift-Enter). If so, don't worry about it. The Line Break will preserve the original lines from the book without causing each individual line to become it's own paragraph. If that's not it and you want to remove it or replace it with a space, then try selecting it and copying and pasting it into Search and Replace.

In a book I am validating which I figured had enormous troubles since it has been on the step one list since 2004, there is a mark that makes like a hard return at the end of each line even though it's not the end of the paragraph. It looks like an arrow pointing to the left with a little line at the right of it that goes upwards. I don't know what that marker is (in reveal codes) and if I knew what it was, I might be able to replace it with something else that would help get rid of it so that the paragraphs would come out right. Like I know that the paragraph mark is ^p. Otherwise the only way to fix that is to delete each one which I can do but it's going to be tedious.
