How do you remove formatting and paragraph marks from a manuscript before you submit it?
It's driving me crazy, now that I know they are there.
The formatting and paragraph marks in Word are only visible in certain views. They can be turned off, leaving the formatting and paragraphs in place, but not displaying the marks.
I don't know about other software packages, but in Word 2007, the 'Home' tab displays a back-to-front 'P'. Click that.
If you're using a different version of Word or indeed another package and can't find the paragraph character (back-to-front 'P'), press F1 and type into the search box "hide formatting" and that should give you the instructions you need.
That's how I did it anyway.

When formatting a Word Doc Kindle eBook, do you indent the paragraphs?I have heard a couple of writers say that for non-fiction eBooks, you don't indent. I have also heard that Kindle will add indentations. Is this true? Is it kosher to not indent?

What should I use for a bulleted list of definitions? Bold text could be used but isn't good for making the terms searchable. Attempting to highlight using H3 tagging just highlights the whole paragraph.

I am struggling with learning about ebook formatting and am wondering, if you have published an ebook, exactly how you format your work. What fonts, allignment, etc. do you use or does it matter? Help and advice will be appreciated.
