Quickly replace or convert soft returns to hard returns in Word

If you need to replace or convert all soft returns (manual line breaks) into hard returns (paragraph marks), you may need at least several steps to get it done in Word. But with Kutools for Word’s Convert Manual Line Breaks to Paragraph Marks utility, you can quickly replace or convert all soft returns to hard returns in Word.

Hard return: Pressing the Enter key in Word ends a paragraph. It’s officially known as typing a hard return. Yes, it’s a return even though the key is known as Enter on a PC. The problem with the hard return is that it adds a bit of margin after a paragraph. That’s a good thing; you should have margin around paragraphs in a document.

Soft return: Those times when you don’t want air, when you need to put lines of text close together, you use a soft return. The soft return, or line break, is used primarily in titles and headings; when you have a long title and need to split it up between two lines, you press Shift+Enter to insert the soft return.
