Hi I have a long document with many many soft returns which i'd like to remove. How do I do it in an automatic way rather than going through each one manually. thanks

Just see help List of Regular Expressions - line with \n

So, find \n and replace it with \n (Regular Expressions must be ON)

Yes, you're right! I was careless when wrote this message. It should have been written "replace it with \n or with a space, or an empty string, or even to something". Your answer is definitely better. Vote for your answer
