I have some OLD (1995) WordPerfect files that I need to convert to PDFs
for archiving purposes. I haven't had WP installed in several years, so
I was trying to open them with Word 2003.

The files open just fine, except that many (most?) of the paragraphs are
converting to a hanging indent. I don't expect anyone to ever need these
files so I'm not going to spend time fixing the paragraphs individually
(hundreds of pages), but if there's a quick way to get rid of the
hanging indent, that would make me happy.

I'm hoping that there's a way to use Find and Replace, but I don't know
how. Can anyone offer suggestions?
