Hello.
Is it possible to make a macro that will take 250-300 lines of text,
place a line break (Enter) between each line,
and then identify the line break as Heading 1, and the paragraph as Heading 2?

On the full document (1500 pages) it hung up. But it was fun to watch it operate on the shorter document (13 pages). It ran from back to front.
