I have a similar problem. I sometimes, especially when copying and pasting text from a WEB page, find 2 hard returns one after another. How can I search for double hard returns, ¶¶, and replace them with single hard returns, ¶.

Don't think of searching for what you are calling a "hard return", because it doesn't really exist. That pilcrow is just a marker, showing where there is a paragraph break; there really is nothing there! If you have two consecutive paragraph breaks, what you have between them is an empty paragraph - and it is this that you need to delete.

Just search for ^$ (caret - dollar) and replace with nothing.

I trust this helps.
