Default intentional format one sentence paragraphs

This is something of a dilemma. If you don't use punctuation and have no
concept of grammatical construction or the use of capital letters, how would
a macro be able to sort out your ramblings into paragraphs?
If, however you simply want to make each sentence into a paragraph, a start
might be to use the replace function to replace a full stop (period) with a
full stop followed by a paragraph marker (^p).

Use the Search and Replace dialog (Control+H) to find instances of a 'full
stop followed by a space' and replace with a 'full stop followed by a
paragraph break'.

Reading your other reply, I think you need something different.

Am I correct in thinking that you find the lines of text are TOO long?

You want shorter lines so that it is easier to read?

Don't use Ctrl+P; type ^p (the ^ character is Shift+6 on U.S. keyboards).

Or click More to expand the dialog, click Special, and choose Paragraph Mark
from the menu.

Use Ctrl+A to select all of the text then use the Format Paragraph dialog to
add space after each paragraph.

You don't really need to record a macro to do this; just do it.

I can't see how replacing a period and a space with a period and a paragraph
mark is so difficult, and this would largely accomplish what you want.

Within the limitations of the information you initially provided that's what
you have got. If you want it as a macro, then

Sub CreateParas()
Dim oRng As Range
Set oRng = ActiveDocument.Range
With oRng
.Text = Replace(oRng.Text, Chr(46) & Chr(32), Chr(46) & Chr(13))
.Text = Replace(oRng.Text, Chr(63) & Chr(32), Chr(63) & Chr(13))
.Text = Replace(oRng.Text, Chr(33) & Chr(32), Chr(33) & Chr(13))
.ParagraphFormat.SpaceAfter = 12
End With
End Sub

http://www.gmayor.com/installing_macro.htm

will take you as close as you are likely to get. However you still have the
problem that the macro requires a properly constructed sentence in order to
have something to work with.
