MS word 2007 text won't wrap

Posted on 2009-02-20

I have a ms 2007 word document.  When I'm typing and I get to the "edge" of the page, instead of advancing the entire word to the next line, it breaks it in half, for lack of a better term, and does not keep the word together as a whole.  Any ideas how to fix this?

    You might have hyphenations turned on. Go to the Page Layout tab - In the Page setup box click on Hyphenation. Select none.

    No that's not it.  It is set to none and it's only doing it on this one document.  Were you able to view the document I attached and edit it?

    The first time I uploaded your document, there were only 2 characters on it. I tried it again and got 2 lines of symbols. Checking properties I saw 4 lines, 139 characters and only 1 word. For some reason it is treating a space as part of the word. Once I changed the font from sans serif to Arial word warp returned. Never seen behavior like this before.
