Question Fill paragraph in Abiword


I use emacs for typing text, since my PC is slow.
Column size is 70 and i use autofill mode. But if this file is opened in abiword, it looks odd since the paragraphs are not filled (spread across the page).

Is there a way to make abiword re-word wrap the paragraphs like the command "fill-paragraph" in emacs?

I want the file to look like it was typed from the start in Abiword, in which case it would have filled the paragraphs correctly.

Thank you.

Is the speed of emacs really that much better than Abiword?

Regardless, when you import raw text into a word processor, you often have to get rid of a bunch of line feeds. Thsi, of course, you could do with something like SED.
