Keeping paragraphs together


Together by Laura Limón, Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs License

Have you ever noticed that page breaks are not where you want them to be? It can make it hard to read documents if the heading is at the bottom of the page and not with the text it is the heading for. Or if a bulleted list is broken across a page.

You could insert manual line breaks, but there is a better way which allows to Word to keep it all under control even when you make changes to the document. It can link two paragraphs so they always stay together on one page.

Just right click the heading or paragraph that you want to stay on the same page as the next one, and choose Paragraph from the options that appear.


In the paragraph window, go to the Line and Page Breaks tab and tick Keep with next.


That’s it! Done.
