submitting work - paragraph page-breaks


Recommended Posts

Hi Tom - It should preserve the extra line between paragraphs if it's formatted that way in another program. I just tried pasting from Word and it kept the extra line as expected.

 

Can you please confirm if the content you're pasting includes an extra line between paragraphs?

Bingo @Rebecca!  Word was set up to have extra space after the paragraph instead of an extra line. Do most people  usually not have that extra space, but have that extra line? I thought I was just using the Word default.

An extra line between paragraphs is pretty standard for writing posted online. It breaks things up and makes them easier to read rather than just being a "wall of text." 🙂

 I've searched and there seems to be no way to set Word up to add an extra line between paragraphs. I can't believe all the writers actual do that?

Step 1: CTRL + H

Step 2: Replace ^p with ^p^p

Step 3: CTRL + A

Step 4: CTRL + C

Step 5: CTRL + V into the CW forum.
