    Is there a way for me to find a page break and replace it with paragraph instead in Word 2008?

    Change from Page View to Normal View, find the Page Break, highlight it and Delete. But, using command-F to Find and Replace? I don't think so.

    In an older version of Word, searching for "^m" & replacing with "^p" works for me. :apple:

    In Word 2008, and the bottom of the Replace dialogue box, there's an expansion arrow, which reveals a "Special" menu.
    Use that to put Manual Page Break in the "Find what" box, and Paragraph Mark in the "Replace with" Box.

    (It's what rc135tx said, by doing it manually, but it still works in Word 2008.)
