Remove extra line breaks from Paragraph

Problem we face

Many a times, while working, we face a situation that we may need to copy some content from web or some pdf files to reuse it for us and we generally copy paste it to MS Word.

However, after we paste it, the pasted paragraphs does not appear in proper format or it appears with extra break lines. (See Image below)

In this case, if we manually delete the line breaks, it would be time-consuming. Here is a easy and simple solution (many people might be using this already) which can be used and you can get rid of all these extra lines within few seconds.


1. Select the entire Paragraph

2. Click Ctrl + H to open Find and Replace command

3. Type ^p in Find what field and and keep single space in second field

I hope this is helpful for everyone.
