RTF and TEXT conversion

Hello,

What is the point of adding page numbers to the converted output? I would see the usage of text file so that the paragraphs are not word wrapped, instead the reader device does that. So basically what you should not include, at least in the text file are extra blank lines and page numbers. The text output would otherwise be suitable in my opinion, but in case of TXT file, I don't think the empty lines do much for the end-user.

Would it be possible to get another TEXT output conversion with these things left out or is there a way to customize the output of TXT file conversion?

And by not including blank lines, I mean two or more blank lines in a row. Having an empty line in between chapter titles and perhaps paragraphs is OK, but if there is a page containing just half of the page, there shouldn't be 20 blank lines after the end of paragraph as some of these blank lines can go to the beginning of next page... not really nice formatting in my opinion.

There isn't and they aren't being added. If you are seeing page numbers in the output then they were part of the text of the input file.

The text ouput was supposed to do this... Looks like I commented it out when I was testing and it never got put back... I'll correct this.
