2013-09-30 18:49:40 +0200 answered a question Kindle Previewer shows lots of unwanted lines in my novel.

I'm using Open Office X3.3 without any other services. To tell you the truth, I never heard of AZW Cloud Convert but I'll Google it to see what it does. Thank you. Okinawan Ace.

The unwanted lines are caused by unintended paragraphs, many of them occurring at the end of sentences where they don't belong. Is there a shortcut to eliminating all these unwanted paragraphs? (They show up as paragraph symbols.) Thank you. Okinawan Ace. I'm also interested in how these unwanted paragraphs occurred in the first place--what did I do to create them?

Thank you. I have found out that the reason the backwards slash and "t" doesn't work is I have no backwards slash. When I press the backwards slash key on my keyboard that is between the backspace key and the enter key, I get a yen sign.

I did a little research and went into Tools and then Options and then Language, but couldn't find a way to get rid of the yen sign. I couldn't even find the yen sign listed anywhere so that I could uncheck it. At the bottom of my computer screen, I have EN for English so I dont' know why this yen sign is appearing, and until I can get rid of it and get my backwards slash back, I can't do global removal of all my tabbed indents so that I can finally upload my novel to Amazon Kindle.

Thank you for the "Useful expressions" earlier.

This blogger, Chow, said to use the Edit Replace function using "Carat t" that stands for an indentation space, but when I do that (Carat is "Shift Button and 6" on my computer) with a "t" using the Edit Replace function, I'm told that the search item could not be found. I tried different variations of matching case, etc. and even tried just to find "Carat t" but kept getting "Search item could not be found." Is there really a way to get rid of the indentations I put in using my tab button that seems natural but is a "no-no" as far as Kindle is concerned?

Okinawan Ace. Thursday, September 26, 2013 I was so disappointed that this didn't work!

Hold on! The blogger wasn't Chow, it was some kind person named Joely Sue Burkhart.com and the blog was titled "Formatting for Kindle." I have emailed her but no reply yet. It's only been a day. Would LibreOffice have such a function? If it does, I'll switch because there is no support to speak of for Open Office for some reason.
