Keep Words Together On A Single Line

BY STANLEY ZAROWIN

Q. When I’m writing a memo, there are times I want to keep certain words—full names, for example—together on a single line without breaking them up. It’s not a problem until I add or remove words from the sentence, changing the length of a line. Does Word have a way to prevent a break?

A. Yes, Word has a nonbreaking command. When typing someone’s name, for example, Stanley Zarowin , first type Stanley and then press Ctrl+Shift+Spacebar and type Zarowin . You can do that for as many words as you wish. That will ensure the words you select always remain on one line.
