e.g. I "getthis". I should "get this". This means I have to go line-by-line to find all the merged words.
Don't copy the text directly into Book View, import your text file. Then Sigil will create paragraphs only
where you have an empty line between blocks of text. This will prevent things like "getthis" from happening.
