    Hook, I just noticed this. If you have some formatting quirks with Word, you might try using the option to display the formatting symbols (like paragraph markers, i.e. alinea). Word will probably show double paragraph marks in some cases, which can be deleted manually.

    That's what I described doing and, yes, it worked but was tedious.There is apparently a way to prevent it from happening if you make adjustments to the template and styles before you finalize. I'll tr to master this before the next one in two years. ;)

    When will the audio book be ready? I'm waiting.... :newpalm: (Actually, I''d prefer a radio-drama-play with actors and sound-effects)

    Congratulations. How fantastic Hook! I am really chuffed for you. (thats an English expression conveying pleasure...just in case it doesn't cross the pond well).

    Writing is for me such a chore. I love it when something works out and I get a short story but normally it just gets binned.

    I am sticking to articles for now. Shorter and somewhat easier.

    I could do an author read audio book, I suppose. Trouble is, in my head, the voices are all Jay Ward voice actors. ;) :p :eek:

    We could all pitch in for the voice-characters. Sounds like a *FINE* activity for the BHOT Breakroom and Broom Closet! :rolleyes:

    Now, amongst this bunch, who do you think would work best for which roles? :D
