Lesson 10. Indents and Justification > Controlling Line Breaks

Controlling Line Breaks

The word wrap feature automatically breaks each line in a paragraph when it reaches the right margin. Word offers a couple of methods for controlling the way lines break. You can prevent a line break from occurring between two specific words, thus ensuring that the words always remain together on the same line. These methods can be particularly useful when you modify indents and justification because this often changes where individual lines break.

Word's default is to break lines as needed at spaces or hyphens. To prevent a line break, you must insert a non-breaking space or a non-breaking hyphen instead. To insert a non-breaking hyphen, press Ctrl+Shift+- (hyphen). To insert a non-breaking space, press Ctrl+Shift+spacebar.
