    Is there a way to remove extra hard returns without wrecking text?

      Hey gang,

       

      I have 300 pages of flowing text that arrived via Import XML. Here and there are groups of 2 or 3 empty hard returns littering the flow. I want to Find/Change to get rid of them.

       

      If I GREP search for \r (even adding negative lookaheads and negative lookarounds for the purpose of isolating empty returns) and replace them with nothing, this gives rise to a problem of the NEXT paragraph gets its paragraph style changed.

       

      How can I avoid changing the paragraph style of the text that follows the empty returns?
