This is so irritating. I have a document thats about 30,000 words long. It was copied off a webpage and I need to print it.
Problem is if I print the webpage itself, it prints with the right margin being 4" wide, which means this document is taking about 3x as much paper as it needs to.
I tried copying it into a text document, into word, I cannot figure out how to remove all linebreaks from this document so that it fills a page.
Why is this so difficult? Things that are easy on the PC for well over a decade now are still a pain in the ass on the mac.
I seriously need an app to do this? Unbelievable.
read it on screen, tree-killer!
You do seem to have some pretty tough times with macs. That formatting would cause a problem if you copy / pasted it on a pc too, and printing it from a browser would most likely give you the same results on a pc as well.
- Except if you paste it into a plain text document on the PC, it gets rid of all formatting, which is what it should do.CygnusZero4
- Plain text document doesnt mean plain text on the mac. Still has formatting which makes no sense.CygnusZero4
- Plain text would still carry over linebreaks, no?brains
- It does, but its very easy to remove them all, not on the mac though.CygnusZero4
I cant believe I have to pay $40 to do this. Fuck this machine ill throw this text on a thumb drive and do it on the PC where its fucking easy, which is how something like this should be.
past as text

Perhaps the problem lies between the chair and the keyboard.
or save as pdf and edit that shit again..
or copy to text editor and then change to "flat text"
word has a 'paste special' option -> choose that and PASTE AS TEXT!! ;)
i jsut googled this all.
In Word, do find/replace and enter ^p in find
