What is the quickest and most accurate way to undo manual tabbing in Word and reformat those lines with paragraph alignment?
I am publishing a book on Amazon Kindle next month. In order to avoid the pitfall of repeating too many "she said's", "he said's", I offset dialogue on a new line with tabbed spacing. For example:
"Character one says something." This line is a half-inch from the left margin.
"Character two responds to character one." This line is an inch from the left margin.
When I looked through Kindle's formatting requirements, I read that tabbed text will not register on Kindle devices
. Instead, text should be indented with paragraph alignment changes. The page recommends using this method
to change indentations, however, I only see an option to do the first level of indentation, not further levels. (Keep in mind I am trying this on a Mac using Word 2007).
Other than the above listed page, what are methods I could try? Ideally, I'd like some kind of macro that could both undo the manual tab and redo with the paragraph indentation. It would be fine if I needed a macro for each level of indentation.
I have access to both a Mac and a PC, as well as Word 2007 and Word 2010.
