I imagine this is a common problem, so I don't know why I'm
having so much trouble finding an answer.

Suppose I have a text document that I've worked on in
text-mode. It is filled using the usual fill tools, so it
wraps at 72 characters, with a hard return after each line.
Paragraphs are separated by an extra hard return; there's no
other indentation.

I now need to give this document to someone who wants to work
on it in a word processor, who complains that there are hard
returns after every line. What's the easy way to remove these?

Some way may be unfill-region, that I found here at NG some years

(defun unfill-region (start end)
  "Make all START to END a single line."
  (interactive "*r")
    (goto-char end)
        (progn (goto-char (point-at-bol)) (< start (point)))

But for long texts I use simply fill-paragraph or
fill-individual-paragraphs on whole text (buffer is in
text-mode, no longlines-mode is active). The result is
one lines per paragraph.
