It would not help in my case.
1. It would help but then it would take me a full week of 8 hours shifts of deleting all of them one by one, the book was very long.
2. Bizzare, but the empty paragraphs were not recognised as such by BD.
I knew about your solution. That was one of the very first things I have tried.

So, my solution was a bit different(although lengthly process as well).

I was selecting as much as possible of text that I can see on one screen. Then either go to:
Code:
Format/more transformations/select elements -> paragraphs
or right click with a mouse on selected text and select
Code:
more transformations/select elements -> paragraphs
in a drop down menu.

It would remove all the fake empty paragraphs in select text.
You cannot use "select all" because it would remove all empty paragraphs which would be a bad solution as well.
