That list of 1,347 annual donors is staring at you on the screen. Each donor name is separated by a paragraph break and your department director just casually asked you to convert this to line breaks because it needs to take up less space in the program book.
You’re not crazy, that list is mocking you with delight over having ruined your morning. It’s practically quivering at the thought of triggering to your repetitive stress syndrome. But if you know this simple Find and Replace trick, you can tell that list to sod off and finish the entire task in seconds. Hint: it involves the caret character.
I published an article at ArtsHacker.com with step by step instructions for this chore along with how to go about converting a paragraph or line break list into a comma separated list.
