Everytime I paste text into WordPad, from pretty much any source, extra lines are inserted. Such as I want to paste -

  This is line 1.
  This is line 2.
  This is line 3.

Becomes -

  This is line 1.

  This is line 2.

  This is line 3.

Anybody know how to stop this from happening? Thanks!

Paste text from what source? – bytebuster Feb 8 '13 at 20:17
It seems to have the issue from any source. Even Notepad! – A Bogus Feb 8 '13 at 20:23

Try clicking the paragraph button (to the right of the justification options) and then unchecking "Add 10pt space after paragraphs". Click "OK" and try again.
