Default How to release hard returns?

Office '07

I scanned a magazine page with OCR. The result of the OCR was displayed by a text reader. I cut and pasted the text into Word. The resultant text maintains the narrow column style of the magazine. I selected the entire text in Word hoping I could find a command that would release all the hard returns and allow the text to take the default Word right margin vs manually deleting the returns. No luck. Is there a way to do what I want?


I found the solution after a Google search: "MS Word allows the "carat p" symbol ^p (carat is the <shift> 6 key) to represent a carriage return in an MS-Word replace command."
