I have a MS Word problem.

Does anyone know what carriage returns or carriage markers are? I fear I've just annoyed an editor at an online magazine who told me I submitted a story that will be a pain to reformat if they decide to accept it. The story used to have paragraphs separated by a space, but they wanted the paragraphs indented instead. I don't know how to change that except to manually click backwards and press tab to indent, which apparently will cause problems with their template. Is there any quick way to switch?

In other words, does anyone know a quick way to change paragraphs that are separated by a space into paragraphs that have no spaces and are indented? Example:

This is a paragraph separated by a space. This is a paragraph separated by a space.This is a paragraph separated by a space.This is a paragraph separated by a space.This is a paragraph separated by a space.This is a paragraph separated by a space.This is a paragraph separated by a space.This is a paragraph separated by a space.This is a paragraph separated by a space.This is a paragraph separated by a space.This is a paragraph separated by a space.This is a paragraph separated by a space.

This is a paragraph separated by a space.This is a paragraph separated by a space.This is a paragraph separated by a space.This is a paragraph separated by a space.This is a paragraph separated by a space.This is a paragraph separated by a space.This is a paragraph separated by a space.This is a paragraph separated by a space.This is a paragraph separated by a space.This is a paragraph separated by a space.This is a paragraph separated by a space.

I need my paragraphs to be indented without any spaces separating them.

Argh, what the heck are they using? :( You could go into the Page Set-up...but I don't know. You should ask them what version of MS Word they're using. I bet there might be online tutorials if you Google them.

Good luck! I wish I could help more!
