First, alignment it justify.

Put cursor in front of the second line , backspace > space > end

Enter to go tho the next line. From the next time ...

home > backspace > space > end and then enter

upto the end of the document. No other eay to fix it, as far as I know.

Find - Replace command in MS Word is a great tool for such things.

As each line ends with a paragraph mark (EOL character), you can concatenate (join) the lines using the Find - Replace command.

For applying the command throughout the document just use the command below. For only a selection of text, first select the text and then use the command below.

Open the Find dialog box, in Find field type "^p" (^p for paragraph character) and in Replace field " " (a single space). Do a Replace All or Replace for each Find.

After this to remove extra spaces keeping only one space between words,

In Find field type " " (two spaces) and in Replace field " " (one space) and then do a Replace ALL a few times till the dialog box says "0 replacements".

This trick can be used to remove manual line breaks (^l), manual page breaks (^m), tab character (^t), non breaking space (^s), non breaking hiphen (^~), section break (^b) etc. in one go with Replace All command.

Can't access text effects in Word 2010
I'm "scundered" to only now discover a whole raft of text effects are available within Word 2010 except I can't access them!! That's partly the reason I'm only now realising they exist, as the button's been greyed out and I've continually missed spotting it to investigate until I read about them...
