When you open a text file in abiword, it always takes it line by line,
i.e. it adds an end of line at each LF. When you write a text in emacs
there is an automatic wrapping to 72 columns and this inserts a LF. I
saw in lyx a very nice feature when you import a text file, you can
choose to get it line by line i.e each LF is an EOL or you can do the
same paragraph by paragraph i.e. each 2 lines separated by 1 LF are
joined, as soon that you have a blank line which is equivalent to 2
consecutive LF, a EOL is added to make a "paragraph". This is called in
the lyx jargon "import text as lines" or "import text as paragraphs"
Is there the same feature in abiword ? If so, where can I find it, if it
does not exist I think it could be simple to implement though very very
useful in UNIX. I am not enough into abiword's code to do it myself...
