Whenever I write my chapter on Microsoft Word and paste it before posting it, it always comes up lacking several spaces; both between words and paragraphs. It also seems to make new lines too early and breaks up my sentences unnecessarily. I was wondering if that's normal, and if it is, does anyone know if there is a way to deal with it aside from editing the entire post?

It can happen sometimes (probably due to spacing settings or something along those lines in Word, although I can also get the problem from copying posts from other forums too). One way I use to overcome it if it happens is to c+p it into something simpler first (say Notepad) and then copy again from that.

After a series of rigorous (and slightly unnecessary) tests, I don't see the same problems coming up. Thanks, this will make things a whole lot easier for me.
