Can you automatically remove empty lines?

I want to convert some documents to ebooks, except the empty line (instead of indents) looks really bad in MS Reader. I don't really want to do this manually since the document is quite long, so I'm really hoping someone will know a program that can do this automatically.

You could use a text editor with search and replace function using regular expressions. In the search I would place \r\n\r\n and in the replace field \r\n\t . The \r\n\r\n will find two new lines and replace them with one new line and a tab (\r\n\t). You can just click Replace All after you get the regex correct.

My favorite text editor with regex search and replace capability - EditPad

My favorite regex tutorial.

I have a PalmOS-based handheld, not MS, but I know that some of the reader applications can automatically remove the line and add indents when displaying the text. Is that an option in MS Reader? Or, is there a freeware doc reader for your platform with that capability?

I don't think there is that option in MS Reader, can you tell me the names of those applications that can do that?

Sorry, I had to nuke my Clie a few months ago, and I don't remember what the application was. But it was PalmOS, so that doesn't really help you either.

EditPad would work with your problem, but the syntax I gave you was incorrect. I forgot that you can't use regular expressions in the replace field, but you can do this: In the search field put (\r\n)\r\n and in the replace field put $1<Shift+Tab>. That should work. Sorry for my mistake.
