Fixing text from e-mail threads, PDFs, and other sources using Text Rescue
There are many ways in which digital text gets mangled:
- Text copied from e-mail threads often contains unwanted quotation marks and line breaks. In particular, some e-mail signatures tend to acquire blank lines after every line of text.
- Text copied from PDFs is often hard-wrapped, which means that there is a carriage return at the end of every line in the paragraph.
- Text from various sources often acquires sets of consecutive blank lines.
You can use the online tool Text Rescue to remove unwanted newlines from text, to convert hard wrap to soft wrap, and also to get rid of email quotation marks.
