    I have pasted text from a PDF text box and I need to reformat it in word
    (remove all the carriage returns). Does anyone have an easy way to remove
    all the carriage returns in a document?
    Cheers

    Hi Bamba,

    In the Find/Replace screen, insert ^p in the Find box, with nothing in the Replace box.

  3. I doubt that you want to remove *all* of them. See
