In the given photo you can see two paragraph breaks. I want to keep the break at the end of each paragraph but not the second one between paragraphs.

screenshot showing the extra breaks


Simply delete the extra (blank) paragraphs. To all appearances, the paragraph format is set to have additional whitespace either before or after (or both); you don't need to insert extra blanks between paragraphs.


Use Search and Replace and replace the doubled Paragraph Marks with a single Paragraph Mark.

Search for ^p^p

Replace with ^p

You can find them under the Special drop-down on the bottom of the dialog.
