I've converted a pdf file to Word 2003, but I have a number of returns indicated by a leftward-pointing arrow with a tail pointing upward (what is this character called?) I'd like to replace this formatting type with a hard return (^p). Could someone please tell me how to indicate the original formatting type in the Find/replace dialog?
Thanks, Kevin

Hi Kevin Nov 17, 2005

In Word, choose Edit > Replace > More > Special > Manual line-break (^l)

Replace it with hard line break (^p)
