No criticism intended, of course.

First combine single-line paragraphs: [...]

AutoCorrect had the effect of changing most non-empty "Default Style" paragraphs to "Text Body" style, with the rest chosen [by spacing hints?] to be "Hanging Indent", "Heading", "Heading 1", "List", "List 1", "Numbering 2" or "Text Body Indent". (Empty paragraphs remained "Default Style".) That was a MUCH more elaborate and sophisticated AutoCorrect than I ever would have imagined.

You may or may not want all that to happen. If not, it is wise to use this technique first, before applying any other formatting. You can then choose to select all the text and apply a paragraph style of choice - Default, Text Body, or whatever.

Now I understand the point of AutoCorrect Option "Combine single line paragraphs if length greater than 50%". But how do you "adjust the minimum length of such paragraphs in AutoCorrect Options - possibly to 0%"? (The fact that I don't find the setting suggests that I may have also missed something basic in your explanation.)

As has already been said, you use the Edit... button - which will be greyed out until you highlight the relevant option.

Note: Even after having this excellent explanation on a use of AutoCorrect, I went back to the Writer Guide and still don't find it.

In suspect you are right.

Then remove empty paragraphs: [...]

Again I like your pedagogical approach, matching the action with the reasoning.


You should be a teacher.
