    I've got that part pretty easily, but I have a table with a blank page after it that I cannot remove. Ideas?

    But how do you see the page breaks and other breaks and paragraph returns in the google doc in order to remove them? Word has a view where you can see all these edits to a document. Thanks for your help.
