Why did you move them into a Word document...the plygin creates a
separate FM document, just use that, I also changed the output columns,
but to two column.

Because I know Word's search and replace better than I do Frame's and it
allowed me to do quick reformatting.

After that, I tweaked the program's .fm file that it uses for a template and
got an even better result, but with a quirk that I was unable to work
around. I made the body text 8pt and also made it run-in heading style. As a
result, I got everything paragraphed together, but the problem is that the
last paragraph runs into the heading of the next section, and I don't know
how to force the heading paragraph to start on a new line.
