    Mysterious line/page breaks on Import from Word?


      I have recently begun experiencing a problem during import from MS Word. Full disclosure: I am now using Pages as my primary word processer, so to import into InDesign I must first export to Word.


      At the end of paragraphs, InDesign inserts a break character with a hard, visible line in the layout. It frequently creates a page break where the was none before, and I have to go in and re-set paragraph style preferences to fix the pagination problems this creates. This will typically eliminate the overset text, but does not get rid of the hard line/break in every case.


      I have not yet been able to identify exactly what kind of breaks these are, so getting rid of them is tough. A screenshot follows:

      Any help would be appreciated.
