I have scanned a chapter of text When I try to reformatt to 1" margins the rule show the adjustment. However the text fails to fill the page to the set margins. How to force the text to expand to full page
This inface problem didn't exist with Windows XP
What version of word are you using, and can you post the word document so I can see what is happening to better assist you?

Criminologists study the operations of the criminal justice system, which is made up oflaw enforcement agencies, prosecutors' offices, defense attorneys, judges, juries, probation and corrections departments, and parole authorities. They investigate how the system handles offenders-specifically, suspects, defendants, convicts, probationers, inmates, and parolees. Victimologists explore how the system handles victims: how the police respond to complainants; how prosecutors, defense attorneys, and judges treat these witnesses for the state; and how corrections, proba- tion, and parole officials react to victims' special requests.
Sociologists who analyze social institutions from a functionalist perspective point out that the criminal justice system is supposed to serve as the first line of defense for innocent, law-abiding people against the depredations of the "criminal element." In other words, the system ought to work to help victims recover from harm inflicted by offenders. But those who adopt a conflict perspective see the legal system in a different light. Agencies and officials act to some extent on their own behalf and follow policies that are in their own self-interest, as well as to the advan- tage of more powerful interest groups that dominate society (see Reiman, 2005). Therefore, it is not sur- prising from the conflict perspective to discover that certain issues place victims at odds with the agencies and officials whose ostensible mission is to protect and assist them.
VICTIMS VERSUS THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM
The criminal justice system is one branch of gov- ernment that comes under scathing attack from all political quarters. Conservative crime control pro- ponents, treatment-oriented liberals, civil libertar- ians, civil rights activists, feminists, and victim advocates-all find fault with its procedures and principles. Over the past few decades, even some officials who run its agencies and shape its daily operations have joined the chorus of critics calling for change. However, they sharply disagree over how to reform the system.
The consensus among the experts who focus on victim issues is that the criminal justice system does not measure up to expectations. It fails to de- liver what it promises. It does not meet the needs and wants of victims as its clients or consumers of its services. Serious problems persist, and the indict- ments of the system voiced over the years still stand today (see Box 6.1).
SUP20se a person is robbed and injured. What could and should the system do to dispense justice in this case?
Law enforcement agencies are at the intake end of the legal system and are the criminal justice
professionals that victims initially encounter. Police officers could rush to help the victim and provide whatever physical and psychological first aid might be needed. They could catch the culprit and properly collect evidence that will stand up in court. They could recover any stolen goods taken by the robber and speedily return these items to the rightful owner. The prosecutor could make sure the defendant is indicted and then press for a swift trial. After conviction, the victim's views about a fair resolution of this case could be fully aired. The judge could hand down a sentence that would balance the victim's wishes with the community's desires and the robber's needs. Correctional author- ities could see to it that the probationer, prisoner, or parolee doesn't harass or harm the person whose complaint set the machinery of criminal justice into motion. If the offender was ordered by the judge to reimburse the victim for his losses and ex- penses, then correctional authorities could insure that these payments or services are delivered in a timely fashion, as promised.
But this "best-case scenario" frequently does not materialize. Instead of enjoying the cooperation of officials and supportive services from agencies as the system handles "their" cases, victims might find themselves sorely disappointed or even locked into conflicts with the police, prosecutors, judges, war- dens, and parole boards.
I need the word document itself. Push the paperclip to attach the word document.
I've sent chapter 7
I created the attached word document from the one you uploaded by doing the following:
1. Find and replace the soft returns (^l), these are also known as line breaks. Use the Replace dialog box, for the Find what enter "^l" (that's a lowercase L as in lower), for Replace with ensure the box is empty. Press Replace all.
2. There will be some places with double spaces. Using Replace for Find what clear the box and press the space bar twice, for Replace with clear the box and press the space bar once. You do not want to replace all single spaces, because all spaces will dissappear.
3. The scanned text had some hyphenation, which know appears on the same line, but with a space after the hyphen. Use the Replace dialog again, and for Find what clear the box and enter "- ", that's a hyphen followed by a space. Clear the Replace with box. Press Replace all.
If you are unsure what a recurring character is in the text (i.e. maybe the hyphen is an emdash, a different ascii code that will not be found if you hit the hyphen key on the keyboard), highlight that character copy and paste it into the Find what box. ^l is the soft return, a hard return, or carriage return, is ^p, it can be difficult to determine what is what between word documents, so you may need to reveal the formatting codes, which can be done by pressing Shift+F1
Why is word doing this now, well it's more advanced, so it believes that it is being smart by inserting the line breaks, rather than simply adjusting the margins. Where before you could adjust the margins to use less paper, word thinks it is better to maintain the scanned aspect of the text and allow you to draw or add your comments in the margin.
I am not able to find the control center for the soft returns or line breaks could you explain a detail map to achieve the changes desired.
Thanks for the help so far.
Use the replace dialog
^l for line breaks, that's a lowercase l
The idea is to have word find and replace all line breaks with nothing, so leave the "Replace with" box blank
You get to the replace dialog box by pressing the "Replace" button on the "Home" banner (or Ctrl+h)
