    Default Polaris to Word: incorrect line break

    Hello, I want to convert my Polaris Office document (from Asus Transformer Pad) into a Word document (Computer).
    When I open my Polaris document in Word, the lines are broken incorrectly.
    I tried the 'line break tool' in Word, but the words are still broken incorrectly to the next line.
    Like: The words are br
    oken incorrectly.

    Can someone please help me?

    Welcome to the forums!
    I don't know how to get it to Word, but You can try Kingsoft Office for Android. It is a better PDF viewer anyway, and I think MS can read it. If not, you can get Kingsoft for you PC.

    It sounds as if Polaris puts soft word breaks (or other non-printing characters) into words for its own purposes (WordStar used to do this), and Word sees them as word delimiters. You need a program that strips off non-printing characters, so Word only sees what you see. Any program that stips the high bit will do, but since most formats are known, so the problem doesn't occur, there probably aren't any programs out there to do that any more.

    See if you can export the file from Polaris as plain text, or "without formatting" or something like that. Word would handle that better.

    Thank you for your replies.
    I downloaded the Kingsoft Office app on my tablet.
    After opening my Polarisdocument in Kingsoft Office, I saved it on my USB.

    Now Word (on my computer) breaks the lines correctly!

    Thanks

    I guess I was wrong - there's no program to do it any more, now it's just a function in Word. Handy to know. Thanks.
