    How to remove random extra spaces and auto format book?

    aleximac1

      I have a ~500 page book I'm formatting in inDesign. I autoflowed all the text in, but unfortunately in the original RTF document there were many extra spaces and returns (enter key) where there shouldn't be. Basically, if the text following the previous paragraph is not indented, I need to delete any extra returns.

       

      ANY HELP IS MUCH APPRECIATED

       

      EXAMPLE:

       

      LOOKS LIKE:

       

      Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Nam eu semper massa,

      sed rhoncus eros. Nulla et tellus eget arcu fermentum porta. Mauris

      lacinia, augue in scelerisque porttitor, nunc purus consectetur urna, vel sollicitudin mauris erat eu ante.

       

       

          

                Integer dignissim urna massa, vel facilisis lorem ornare vitae. Maecenas imperdiet purus justo. Aenean tempus vehicula leo malesuada egestas. Sed in ipsum eu mi consequat imperdiet. Suspendisse convallis rutrum massa ac faucibus. Maecenas felis velit, rhoncus nec imperdiet et, vestibulum et enim.

      Nunc orci orci, aliquet sed dictum in, aliquam vitae tortor. Proin tempus mauris quam, sit amet ornare massa bibendum non. Vivamus eget condimentum magna. Phasellus risus sapien, molestie id vulputate vel, condimentum vel magna. Quisque in elit arcu. Mauris consequat placerat feugiat. Curabitur cursus nulla libero, eu mattis ante dictum suscipi.

       

      WHAT I NEED IT TO LOOK LIKE:

       

           Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Nam eu semper massa, sed rhoncus eros. Nulla et tellus eget arcu fermentum porta. Mauris lacinia, augue in scelerisque porttitor, nunc purus consectetur urna, vel sollicitudin mauris erat eu ante.

       

           Integer dignissim urna massa, vel facilisis lorem ornare vitae. Maecenas imperdiet purus justo. Aenean tempus vehicula leo malesuada egestas. Sed in ipsum eu mi consequat imperdiet. Suspendisse convallis rutrum massa ac faucibus. Maecenas felis velit, rhoncus nec imperdiet et, vestibulum et enim.

      Nunc orci orci, aliquet sed dictum in, aliquam vitae tortor. Proin tempus mauris quam, sit amet ornare massa bibendum non. Vivamus eget condimentum magna. Phasellus risus sapien, molestie id vulputate vel, condimentum vel magna. Quisque in elit arcu. Mauris consequat placerat feugiat. Curabitur cursus nulla libero, eu mattis ante dictum suscipi.
