This is for an obscure set of readers, I’m sure. But if you ever need to remove the page breaks from a RTF (rich text format) file, here’s how to do it:
- Open the RTF file in NotePad (I use NotePad++, which is an absolute must have replacement for anybody doing web dev)
- Search for “pagebb\” and replace with nothing (empty string)
I write this down because I keep forgetting what to search for. I will frequently run a Data Dictionary in phpMyAdmin on my web databases so I can have a nice dictionary of my Fields. I click in the report area on my browser, Alt-A to select all, Ctrl-C to copy it. Open WordPad or Word and Ctrl-V to paste it. Then Save As an RTF. For some reason, it doesn’t let you just delete those page breaks like you’d think, so I do the steps in this tip to zap them out the hard way.
