How to Prevent Selected Paragraphs From Getting Separated in a Document

BY STANLEY ZAROWIN

Q: Certain paragraphs in documents I prepare need to be next to each other. But when I edit the document, sometimes it repaginates, and those sections slip apart. How do I guarantee that they will remain together?

 

A: In Word 2007, be sure you’re in the document and in the Home tab. Then place the two paragraphs where you want them to be and right-click in the first paragraph. Then click either on the small arrow next to Paragraph or the paragraph itself and then click on the Line and Page Breaks tab. Finally, place a check next to Keep with next and click OK.

 

In Word 2003, the procedure is the same except you start by clicking on Format, Paragraph, then the Line and Page Breaks tab.
