You could try JohnV's macro here:

Or install the AltSearch extension and search the end-of-line characters (having determined which they are) in the paragraphs concerned and replace them with nothing.

I don't think that's his problem. I think he just wants to reduce line spacing in some paragraphs.

Create a new paragraph style and reduce the line spacing on the Indents & Spacing tab. Instead of Single use Fixed at some value less than that shown.

It looked to me as if a word or two could have been added to some lines before the line-break of whichever nature it is.

Extra information might never go amiss, of course.

Thats True ' but remember that all this text is copy-pasted from a pdf with a specific format. Its true that some lines could take 1-2 more words 'thats exactly what i'd like to fix ,but in some automated way (what i finally did was manually fixing every line) and same time not at places where there was Intentionally such spaces...(i.e. special characters and counting)
i think thats pretty difficult...anyway thanx for help guys i fixed it ,it was fckd up cuz i used add a frame instead of auto-column(x3)
