I originally had written a story in Word 2007 and saved it on my flash drive. I lost Word when my computer crashed, but I had borrowed a computer with Word to convert it into RTF so I could open it with LibreOffice that I downloaded.
I found out that where I am submitting this story, I need to remove the hard returns and so far I only see where to view and remove them using Microsoft Word. I again borrowed a computer to view and remove the hard returns and noticed it removed all the spaces and indents. I thought no big deal, I can reformat it on my computer.
Here is where I came across a problem. When I hold down the “shift” key and then “enter” (to create a soft return) it doesn’t indent and I find the last sentence of each paragraph is hanging, I can’t correct that either.
So I have three questions I really hope someone can answer for me.
Can I view hard returns in LibreOffice?
Is it possible to remove hard returns in LibreOffice (I am asking this because I have the original copy with the hard returns.)
After removing the hard returns, how can I reformat my indents and remove the handing format? (Going to format>paragraph doesn’t work, it shows the correct dimensions, but it isn’t showing on my document)
