Does anybody know how I can paste something from Acrobat into Word without it taking every new line as a hard CR? IE, I want to paste this from an Acrobat document

Moving from inspiration, or glimpses of particular lives as
possibilities in a design space, to information that seeks to
pinpoint exact requirements or needs of general
communities is symptomatic of different stances on the
ultimate goal of interpretation, in particular whether it
should be open or closed. The former approach sees
interpretation as opening up a variety of possibilities [52].
The latter sees interpretation as a process of negotiation
toward one single, correct, and unambiguous
understanding; the need to establish a single interpretation
then leads to a proliferation of methods to support a
narrowing of and verification of the potential design space.

but make it look like this:

Should not be the rocket science, no? But I can't figure out how to make it do it in any way other than just deleting that CR/LF (or whatever it is) at the end of each line.

I'm not sure whether it's Acrobat sucking or Word sucking here. It does strike me that it should be possible to fix it in Word, though, and I can't figure out how. Right now if I want to do it I'm pasting it into TextPad, selecting it and Ctrl-J reformatting as a single line, then cut-and-pasting back out. Which works but is clearly ridiculous.
