Microsoft Word: How Do I Globally Delete Carriage Returns?


S

suncobra9

We have a preformatted document that has carriage returns at the end of each
line. We want to justify the text. However these carriage returns prevent
that. Is there a way to globally remove the carriage returns rather than to
remove them one by one?
Is there a way to globally indent each paragraph by the way you set up the
document? Or do you have to indent each paragraph one at a time?
Is it possible to set up the document so that each paragraph is indented
when it is imported?
We are using Microsoft Word 2003, but the document was originally
formatted using Notepad.

Thanks!

For the first question, see
http://word.mvps.org/FAQs/Formatting/CleanWebText.htm.

For the rest, you can select the entire document and use the ruler to apply
an indent. A better approach is to define (or choose) an indented style and
apply it to text. But if you actually mean an indent (as opposed to a
first-line or hanging indent), a better approach would be to change the page
margins)
