I have been having the same problems with line returns and merging notes in converting from 2.31 to 3.0. The print-outs look terrible. My new Windows based printer doesn't work with the DOS based 3.0. I took advantage of a $5.00 offer for Family Tree Maker 5.0 last week. The FTM editor allows you to clean up the returns, but it takes forever. My main knocks against FTM are that the group sheets aren't well organized, no surname capitalization and when I ported the GEDCOM it scrambled the birth order of children that didn't have hard birth dates (i.e. it doesn't recognize baptism dates).
