As a Planner, you’ll be quoting a lot of policy documents, which means lots of copying and pasting from PDFs. Unfortunately, copying from a PDF often breaks up each line when pasted into another program (i.e. Word or InDesign). I know when someone in the office is doing this, because you here the same key pattern over and over:
down, home, backspace, backspace… down, home, backspace, backspace… down, home, backspace, backspace…
Luckily there’s a solution. Try copying your text into the box here and letting TextFixer.com do the work for you. If you don’t want to use a webpage, download AutoUnbreak (a light windows plugin) and create a shortcut on your taskbar (that’s how I roll).
Obviously this is unnecessary if you’re copying a couple of lines, but can save a significant amount of time if you’re pasting a lot of text.
