Default how to reformat paragraphs from plain text

When I import a plain text file, every line is ended with a paragraph mark. I
can do a find/replace on a per paragraph basis, but on a fifty page doc that
will take until the day after doomsday.

Any other options.

Thanx
Phil

Thanks to both for the link. Unfortunitly the autoformat didn't work as
advertised. I am now doing the find and repl thing. Word 03 is still the
coolest
