A fellow teacher and I had copied hundreds of questions from Canvas into a shared question bank. There were about 1500 lines of added blank space. This add-on cut our document down by 30 pages in just a few seconds. I am sure it will be even more useful as I play with it in the future!

As someone with 0 computer coding understanding was asking google in the dumbest way how to fix this problem when copying from ChatGPT, found this in Linkedln and was incredibly simple without needing to understand macros etc and some of the other terms posts referred to. Thank you!

So, I stumbled upon this wicked Add-on and lemme tell ya, it's a total game-changer! If you're like me and copy-paste stuff from outside sources, this bad boy helps you format your doc lightning fast. One of the coolest features is how it nixes those annoying empty lines caused by carriage returns. Ya know, those unnecessary paragraph breaks that make your doc look all wonky? Well, with Remove Blank Lines, you can ditch 'em with a few clicks, no sweat. It saves so much time, it's insane! But wait, there's more! This add-on also crushes those pesky double spaces after a period. Say goodbye to that old-school style and hello to the modern look of single spacing. It's super easy, just hit a button, and bam! The interface is a piece of cake to use, even if you're not tech-savvy.

Great work Alice! How about a feature request? My bugbear with copy and pasting to Google Docs is ordered and unordered lists are not converted. Would it be possible to convert them?
