Chapter 10. ADVANCED TEXT > Keeping Lines Together

Keeping Lines Together

Another technique to control text is to specify how many lines of text must remain together in a column or page. This is commonly called controlling the paragraph widows. InDesign does this using the Keep Options.

To set the keep options for a paragraph:

1.
Choose Keep Options from the Paragraph palette submenu. This opens the Keep Options dialog box .

Figure 10.16. The Keep Options dialog box controls how the lines of paragraphs break across columns or pages.


2.
Enter a number in the Keep With Next fines field to force the last line in a paragraph to stay in the same column or page with the specified number of lines.

Tip

This option ensures that subheads or titles remain in the same column as the body copy that follows.

3.
Click Keep Lines Together and set the options as follows:

  • All Lines in Paragraph prevents the paragraph from ever breaking.

  • At Start/End of Paragraph lets you set the number of lines that must remain together for the start and the end of the paragraph.

3.
Use the Start Paragraph pop-up list to choose where the lines must jump to.

Figure 10.17. The Start Paragraph pop-up list lets you choose where the next lines of the paragraph appear.


  • Anywhere allows the text to jump anywhere.

  • In Next Column forces the text to the next column or page.

  • On Next Page forces the text to the-next page.
