Converting from PDF

I'm given a PDF to turn into EPUB. Usual problem. Nice clean text transfer. But extra paragraph markers appear. The laborious job of checking against the original and removing the spurious ones starts. But I can export to docx. The correct paragraph indents survive! How do I tell a conversion process that THESE are the paragraphs I want, ignore those excess paragraph marks? https://imgur.com/a/dHa4HoM

As Media Adds to ‘Bump Stock’ Confusion, Attorney Asks Fundamental Question

Something of His Art - Walking to Lubeck with J.S.Bach ~ Horatio Clare

'Perhaps every long distance walk is a pilgrimage, whether the walker is a believer or not. The reconnection with ourselves through immersion in the world is inevitably therapeutic.' I'm not going to make the overdone wisecrack about buses, you know, waiting for hours and then three come along together, so forget I said that. Just know that having read two books by Horatio Clare in quick succession I'd be quite pleased if a third would hove into view around the bend.  Firstly The Light in ...

Attractive Semi Flush Mount Fixtures

Operation New Office is underway! I have a new design space I rented and it includes a separate room where I’m setting up my new office!

I’ll be blogging in the coming weeks on how that space is developing and I’m hoping to have it complete by the end of the month so 2019 will truly be a fresh start! Right now the space is a blank canvas with plai...

Getting Goodreads into Calibre using import list plugin

Does anyone else do this? I have been doing this for years, but wasn't sure if anyone else does. Goodreads has a tool that lets you export your library data into a csv file that I edit to import into Calibre using the import list plugin. Also, there is a small .exe file that you can run the csv export from Goodreads through to get all the listed start and read dates and genres for all your books. Additionally, you can upload your Calibre Library to Goodreads by doing this process in reverse.

How can I get annotated PDFs back to Dropbox?

This is probably a basic question, but I can't find the answer anywhere. After annotating a PDF with the stylus on my Onyx Boox Note, I can use the Notes -> Export function to export the annotations. It then saves the annotated PDF in a folder which is named /storage/emulated/0/Android/data/com.dropbox.android/files/ ... etc. This seems to imply it is sending the file back to its original Dropbox folder. But I can't see it anywhere in Dropbox on my laptop. I can see it on the Note if I browse to...
