Re: how to get rid of page breaks in note pad


I doubt that is the same symbol as whatever put the page breaks into the document uses. I tried placing the symbol in a document in Notepad and NVDA didn't say page break when it read the symbol. It said carret m.

Also, when I work with the symbol, as far as I can tell, it takes one space.

Hi Heather,

These are steps for Word, but give them a try in Notepad to see how it goes.

You might consider using the "Find and Replace" dialog box to remove all manual page breaks.

1. Use CTRL+H to move focus into the Replace page of the dialog box.
2. In the Find What edit box type a caret followed by a small m. (The
caret is a shift on the number 6 and be sure not to capitalize the m).
3. Tab to the replace edit box but just leave it blank if you don't want to
replace the manual page breaks with anything else.
4. If you want to keep any of the manual page breaks then tab to the
Replace button and use spacebar. You can then use the Next button to move
to the manual page breaks and remove one at a time. Otherwise, tab to the
Replace all button and use spacebar.
5. Word will let you know how many manual page breaks it removed and you can press spacebar on the OK button.

Take care. Mike. Sent from my iBarstool. Go dodgers!

Thank you, I do not have a symbol before the page break, unless, it is the space before the page break. Is that what your talking about? Thank you, Heather

I'm not sure how it might be done other than the method I'll present here.

This is a symbol and for some reason, I find that I can't add it to the

default speech dictionary or the voice dictionary and have it honored. I

have to place it in the temporary dicgtionary. Perhaps others will have

other experiences.

First, you have to get the symbol in a syntax that it can be pasted to the

temporary dictionary. I've tried just selecting it and copying it to the

clipboard. It doesn't work. You have to select something right next to it,

such as a space and select the symbol and copy both to the clipboard.

Then, when you paste what you copied into the pattern field, remove the

additional carachter after pasting.

Then tab once to the pronounced as field and type a space. Tab to and

activate the ok button, then tab to and activate the next ok button. You

have solved the problem for this session of NVDA.

I wish I knew a permanent solution but at least when I've tried this, I have

to go through this procedure every time I run NVDA that I want the symbol

not to be spoken. You may be able to remove the page breaks using search

and replace but I haven't played with that to any extent.

Hello, I wante to get rid of my NVDA from announcing page breaks with

notepad. So what is the best way, if anyone knows how to do this, please

send the sequence commands. I do not like page breaks to be announced when

reading books. Thank you,
