I'm familiar with the Find and Change feature, but wha about find and delete. Can I set the Find and Change to locate empty space fore a paragraph and automatically delete it rather than replacing it? If so how?
Aha! Replace by:
I mean: "nothing!"
If you click Replace or Replace All with the Change to: field empty, the found content gets deleted.
You might also want to look at the Find/Change By List sample script. It fixes empty paragraphs and leading and trailing whitespace, among other things.
