Maintain Blank-Line-Scene-Breaks while converting?

I need again ...

I am sloooowly working my way through my ebooks, converting all those texts I collected during the past 10 years ...

I use calibre to convert to htmlz, then take the html, import into word, format to my heart's content and make my ebooks ... works for me

Now I have many texts that use a "blank line" as an indicator for a scene break - if I convert those, the line disappears - I to manually insert it again ...

Is there a way to tell calibre "put something like »scene break here« into every blank line you find in the text I gave you to convert"?

Assuming by "texts" you mean .txt files, you might have more luck if you convert TXT to EPUB directly.

You will also need to make sure the Convert - TXT Input - Paragraph Style box correctly reflects how your TXTs are formatted.

If "texts" means MSWord .doc files then try saving each .doc as a webpage-filtered .html file before importing to Calibre. Blank lines should be retained in the .html file, they will look something like <p>&nbsp;</p>. Then convert ZIP to EPUB.
