Can you do a search/replace with the text you've extracted before you put it into Word? Or do it right in word and then proceed?

I can't do a search and replace with empty lines, can I?

Yes. Show your invisibles and see what the blank lines are comprised of. It's probably hard returns. Go up top to Edit > Find > Replace and hit the arrow next to where you'd be typing words. If those blanks are hard returns, insert as many "Paragraph Mark" symbols as you need to clear out all those blank lines. Don't Find/Replace a single paragraph mark or you'll end up with one big sentence! If they're all soft returns, that's called "Manual Line Break." You may be able to grab all those invisible lines and just paste them into the search spot. You replace with nothing.

None of it worked. Searching for "Paragraph Marks" (ΒΆ) did not return anything and copying the invisible lines just was going to delete all spaces, hence ending with a big sentence. But thanks anyway for trying.

I wonder what they are! If you want, you can copy out part of the doc and upload it somewhere and I'll look at it. Like if it's private content, remove the content and put XXXXX or something and just leave those big spaces. I'm just used to having to clean out messy documents for re-use.
