Wide Spaces between words - last line of Justified Paragraph

Post by sinclair1952 » Sat Dec 06, 2014 1:54 am

Is there a formatting trick to get rid of those large spaces between words in the final line of a Block or Justified paragraph? The spaces don't occur in every paragraph; they only show up when I have edited things. Thanks in advance.

If you end a paragraph with the regular Return key, this will never happen. It seems you have ended some paragraphs with Shift+Return, which only inserts a line break. You can use Tools/Options/View to make all formatting characters visible - then you will see what happened.

You may also invoke File > Properties..., Tab "View", press button "Compatibility..." and tick the box at "Do not justify lines that end with a soft return (Shift+Return)" to get rid of that problem.
