Default need help in formatting text copied from a pdf document


Hi, just wanted to ask if there is a way for format the below text, and
by formatting, I am referring to justify the text.

I have copies some text from a pdf document, but when I pasted it into
word, all the format and layout is lost. And I could not justify it by
clicking the justify button. I would consider doing it manually except,
this is a rather long document.

thanks in advance for any advice. I tried to search before posting
this, but I obviously did not get the key words right.




Example


Adult Students in Higher Education
Institutions of higher education have historically served a population
of
traditional students who, at approximately age 18, graduate from high
school and
immediately enter college. However, the student population on college
campuses
has been evolving to include larger numbers of nontraditional students.
For the
purposes of this study, the terms nontraditional student and adult
student will be
used interchangeably to refer to students who are 25 years of age or
older.
Although definitions in the field of adult education usually include
more criteria
than age (Merriam & Brockett, 1997), the wide variety of studies
included in this
review defined adult as either 23 or 25 years of age or older. The
National Center
for Education Statistics (2002) reports that in 1999, 39.12% of
students in
degree-granting institutions was comprised of students 25 years of age
or older.
They also predict that in the year 2010, 38.00% of college students
will be 25
years of age or older and 17.00% will be 35 years of age or older.
Bendixen-Noe
(1998) reports that the number of nontraditional students in
undergraduate
programs has reached 45.00%. The American Association of Community
Colleges reports that in 1997 47.00% of community college students were
25
years of age or older. Reading Area Community College (2004) reports an
adult

See http://www.word.mvps.org/FAQs/Format...eanWebText.htm, which will also
work with text from a PDF or anywhere that inserts unwanted line breaks.
