The only thing it doesn't get rid of is when people press "Enter" or "Return" at the end of each line.

There is a workaround for that, too: select the text and go to Format | AutoCorrect > | Apply. Amongst other reformatting, this combines single line paragraphs if their length is sufficient. Since it makes other changes, you may wish to do this before performing other editing. Alternatively, you can use Format | AutoCorrect > | Apply and Edit Changes, which makes the same changes but allows you to accept them or reject them. You could accept all the "Combine paragraphs" changes (sort by Comment and select multiple actions to make this easier) and reject all the rest. This technique also applies Text Body paragraph style, but it is a simple task to change this afterwards if required.

For this technique to work, you need to have ticked Tools | AutoCorrect Options... | Options | Combine single line paragraphs if length greater than nn%. You may need to modify the percentage - which you can do by selecting the option and clicking the Edit... button.

I trust this helps.
