Formating only-text pdf files

Hi,

I have a pdf "only text" file. When I convert it to lrf it shows first line good, second line only half-width, third line good, four line only-half-width and so on.....

Is there any way to convert the file with all lines well formated? is there any way to detech that a line is not broken?

When converting PDF's there is no foolproof way to tell when a line should be groken or not. calibre tries to make an intelligent guess based on average line length, but doesn't always succeed. You can try converting the pdf to HTML first, cleaning up the HTML and then converting that with calibre
