    Automatically convert soft line breaks in text box to hard breaks


      I design textbooks and convert them to responsive, reflowable ePub. These ePubs get formatted then can be used interchangeably with the print text. One book that I'm currently converting is a literature book where there are lines of text with line numbers throughout so that teachers can quickly reference a specific section of text.


      All of the line breaks in the ID file are just set by the edge of the text box. So if the text box were to change sizes, all of the line breaks would also change. Not a problem until you need to maintain those line breaks in a reflowable text and add the numbers in.

      What I'm looking for is a way to automatically insert line breaks into these LONG sections of text at the right locations. Anyone have any ideas on how to do this?
