MS-Word fieldcode editing/changing

You have likely been in this situation before, you paste a large ACSII text into a word document and word makes these annoying double line breaks (new style carrige return) and you actually just want a linefeed.   Well you can change every instance manually but that would take forever, so here is how to do to fix it via a simple “Search and Replace”.

  • Mark the text you want ‘changed’
  • Select “Replace” from the top menu
  • Enter;
  • And execute, that’s all there is to it 🙂

I got the first hint here
And there is a bit more on formatting/fieldcodes here
