I received an article that was composed on a tablet, and it jumps to a new line after about 60 characters.

I’d like to re-format it so it jumps after 120 characters (The full width of my page).

I can do this by “brute force”, going line by line.

However, I feel there ought to be a way to do the whole article at once.

Does anybody know how to do it in WORD?  Open Office Writer? WordPad? Rich Text? Whatever?

The Amazing Snootch, 2001-2017

Some of you already know Snootch.

The day we moved to Brattleboro we met Snootch. As we were unpacking our rental truck and putting boxes in the house, a very tiny yellow-orange kitten with a striped tail wandered up the driveway and began poking around. She was curious, said hello, and looked around a bit. She explored the house, looked in boxes, and tried to hop up on the bed.

Our first Vermont friend.
