If I copy text from a PDF file or a website that has a narrow width margin, those margin settings are preserved when pasted into Word or Onenote. This is annoying because many websites and PDF's have a narrow-width wall of text and it is innefficent when you have a long vertical wall of text that could have been spreaded out more horizontally to make use of the available space on Word/Onenote page.
For example in this paragraph
"A lion, he says, can use his prodigious
hunting skills to capture a field mouse with relative ease anytime
he wants, but at the end of the day, no matter how many mice he's
ensnared, he'll still be starving. The moral of the story: Sometimes,
despite the risk and work involved, it's worth our time to go for the
Notice how the paragraph could be made wider if i deleted spaces after "prodigious", "anytime", "he's", "Sometimes," and "the". This would bring each line underneath to the line above it. That means i have to manually delete a space after each of those words to make the paragraph fit a wider margin available.
How can I automate this process? I tried all of the paste options Word/OneNote offers (Keep source formatting, Merge Formatting, Keep Text Only) and none of them make any difference to the margin/alignment of the paragraph. Nor does playing with Center/justified/left/right alignment helps
