No, no, look, you do it in three steps.
First, in MS Word, ^p is the symbol for the end-of-paragraph character. ^l
is the symbol for the new-line character (within a paragraph) that looks
like a bent arrow.
So do this:
(1) Everywhere there is a paragraph, which is now represented by two
end-of-paragraphs together, you change them to two end-of-lines:
Edit - Replace ^p^p to ^l^l
(2) Now change all the remaining end-of-paragraphs to spaces:
Edit - Replace ^p to (type a space here)
(3) Now change all the stuff you changed in step 1 back to what it was:
Edit - Replace ^l^l to ^p^p
The effect of all this will be to change stuff like this:
this is the first paragraph.
Here is some text of which this is the first paragraph.
Here is some more text.
