I have fill-column set to 75 by default and use fill-paragraph to insert line breaks in the paragraphs of text that I write. On certain occasions though, I need to remove the line breaks but want to retain the spacing between the paragraphs. Up until now I used to set fill-column to a very large number, then filled the entire selected region, and then went back to the default 75. Is there a better way to do this?

  • @Dan :) Perfect, that's exactly what I needed. Thank you!
