Insert a Non-breaking Space

Dennis Faas's picture

When Microsoft Word calculates line width and wraps text to the next line, it tries to break the line at either a space or a hyphen.

Sometimes, however, you may not want Word to break a line at a certain space. For instance, you may wish to make sure that two adjacent words appear on the same line.

The answer is to use non-breaking spaces instead of regular ones.

To do this, hold down the Ctrl and Shift keys as you press the Space Bar.

Word then does not break the line at that point.
