When I copy and past sentences from pdf or Word into Editor, the pasting stops at the first line-break. That makes things a bit complicated. Is there a way around it that would make editor tolerate line-breaks?
Regards

Normal SDLX behavior, imho Jan 20, 2009

Texts converted from PDFs always have hard line breaks in the end of lines. SDLX treats the pasted text with line breaks as different segments.
Can't you remove the line breaks in Word before copying/pasting?

Not SDLX behaviour Jan 21, 2009

This is a PDF-inherent issue. If you copy-paste a paragraph from a PDF file into any other software, such as e.g. Word or SDLX Edit, all lines will end with a paragraph break. There are two ways of getting rid of this problem, both of them rather dull:

1) Copy-paste the entire PDF text into Word and remove all irrelevant paragraph breaks manually. Then copy-paste into SDLX Edit.

2) OCR the PDF.

I personally prefer the latter, but you know what the results of OCR sometimes are...
I'm afraid there's nothing else to do.
